The second way of evaluating image stain is the Pat Gainer recommendation of bleaching out the silver image - thus leaving any stain image behind.

BTW, I am a Pyrocat-MC user. Most of my development is with minimal or semi-stand agitation. BTW, I get excellent results with Sheet film. 35mm and 120 roll film as well.
Yes - but I was talking about the general stain - not the image stain. My observations on general stain were based on the appearance of deep shadows and the unexposed edges of the film.
