I've used the Tetenal "Press Kit" with *very* good results .... and I had *no* trouble with mixing any of the chemicals (although why the "pale" Bleach-Fix powder winds up looking like the usual prune juice, I have no idea).

Seems simple ... Dribble the contents of the packet in one liter of water --- or?? ... I used these chemicals in a JOBO processor at 100 degrees F (38C) and the water was at that temperature during mixing. Did you use substantially colder water?
