From the water holding bath I can take the print to my Archival Washer.
I know I am going to kill off the Fix at a quite a rate – but that’s OK
Should I add some Stop Bath (acetic acid) to the Fix (Ilford Hypam) to help resist the alkali of the Dev ?
I can't advise adding acid to your fix, but you could consider using your washer to rinse and stop before the fix step, just turn it over before you go to washing.
That's just, like, my opinion, man...
