I was thinking about the blue(35mm) and brown(sheet) color that phil mentions vs. the neutral grey I get on all formats. I use D76 and he was using Pyrocat which I understand leaves a usually green stain. I have never used Pyrocat HD but could this be the difference?

In my experience and in the literature from Sandy, Pyrocat usually leaves a brown stain not green. In 35mm FP4 there is a colour shift away from the usual but there is still a blue/grey undertone. In sheet FP4 there is no blue undertone at all. It all comes out in the presoak.
