If you are talking about making a working solution to store, the answer is, in general, NO. Once mixed, the A+B solutions of "normal" Pyro developers begin to oxidize fairly rapidly. You will be left with spent developer in short order, no matter if you use it or not. The normal tray life of Pyro is an hour or less, depending on formula, agitation, quantity, etc. Activated solution in a bottle would last longer I suppose, but would not last long enough, and not be stable enough, to be of any real use in most practical situations.
If you are making a working solution to use in short order, sure, you gotta mix it in something. Curious what the alternative (other than a pitcher or graduate) would be.
