Well, why not? If I leave the bromide out (which I was going to do anyway) I could dilute it 3 or 4 parts water to 1 part Ansco 130 and try it with film.

By the same token, I had planned to try Pat Gainer's P-C-Tea as a paper developer - diluted 15 parts water to 1 part P-C-Tea instead of 50 to 1.
