My computer only shows one page for this thread. The post at the top is the original one. It does mention what to do with the filtered metol base. I think it is a legitimate question. I suspect it is to be discarded.
Didn't mean to brush you off. My computer shows at the top of the second page part of the recipe that ends with a series of dots and a message telling where to click to get the full recipe. In point of fact, you do not really have to filter the stuff. Do the following:
Mix 40 grams of Metol with 85 grams of sodium sulfite in 750 ml of water. Add slowly 38 grams of sodium hydroxide while stirring. Bring the volume to 1 liter. Store it and use as you would Rodinal. I have found that the sulfate created by the neutralizatiion of the H2SO4 on Metol's tail has no photographic effect on the solution.
