Aha ! I found this at http://www.film-and-darkroom-user.org.u ... php?p=6981
Supposedly from an Ilford worker:
Sodium Tripolyphosphate 3.5 gms
Metol 5.0 gms
Sodium Sulphite anhyd.100.0 gms
Sodium Chloride 30.0 gms
water to 1 Litre
I suppose the Sodium Tripolyphosphate could be left out if SOFT or DISTILLED water is used.
I wonder why it is that many of us are bewitched by the quest for the perfect brew... I've seen some beautiful negatives from simple formulae like D-23, and good old D-76/ID-11, yet I'm always tempted by the exotic. I must say though that I recently mixed up some Pyrocat HD, and can see why so many have taken to it.
