This canít be right, can it?

The first sheet through that however, seems to have gone alright. So I wonder if this is normal or not. The working solution is so brown it clings to the thermometer; basically like Espresso.

One part is clear the other should be dark brown/red.

Ah, that puts my mind to rest.

I just couldn’t imagine it would look like years old rodinal out-of-the-box.

Not sure about Tetenal but the blix form E6 was that color.

I may have to give this a try.

Were you processing at 100 degrees F?

No, 38 degrees Celsius.

Oh crap! and here I was doing it wrong for nearly 40 years. Seems I am always half a "degree" off bubble. ;)

Though I have to admit, this is one case where the funny US unit system is more plausible: 100 degrees is the temperature at which you develop color film. Not this useless property of water boiling ...
