I processed two rolls of Neopan Acros today using the last drippings out of my Kodak HC-110 bottle. It's several years expired, extremely dark red, filled with chunks, and semi gelatinous. Dilution E was a bright red color.
Yet the resulting negatives were spectacular.
I swear this developer is the most indestructible set of chemicals on the planet.
^ You mean I should cut back on how much of it I drink .
I definitely concur with the remarks about HC-110 , when mine got
rather chunky , I nuked it and then shook the bejesus out of it and
voila great negatives . Peter
