Development Stats:  Two reel stainless steel tank, inversion and twist agitation.


1.  Presoak 2 min in water at 20 C.

2.  Develop 3.5 minutes in Rodinol 1:50.  30s initial agitation then 10 seconds of agitation (three inversions) every 30s.  Dump at 3.5 min.

3.  Stop with water 20c,  two - four dumps.

5.  Wash 15 min 20c

6. Hang and spray distilled water each side

7. Let dry


These results were consistent and reproduced.
