Thanks everyone.

And thanks d, I will absolutely watch the water content after the rinse, I have to say to say I did little to try to rid the excess after washing this first go around. The emulsion does seem a little runny or watery. I don't suspect I will be able to do much about the temperature that's meaningful, there is no way my hot plate will allow for one degree variation -- it seems kind of an on-or-off kind of device . . . Not the highest quality, perhaps.
