I found this recipe on another site and really like it.
Just add chemicals in order and then heat to about 150F stirring to dissolve the chemicals.
It works as a one solution staining developer. Use it like HC-110, measure, add to water and go.
I use it with 400 Tri-x 120 at 1:200 @70 degrees for 12 minutes.
HP5 in 4x5 I use 1:100 for 6.5 minutes @ 70 degrees.
Jay has come up with a nice staining developer that was easy for me to use as I didn't have to change procedures from the HC-110 I've used before.
I understand this developer has a very long shelf life, but I've only been using it about two months.
If you don't want to buy bulk chemicals, Artcraft sells a kit. That's how I used it the first time.
I've been using a water rinse and TF-4 fixer
