I made a switch in one of my darkroom chemicals. I am now using Dektol from Kodak for a few reasons. Dektol holds strength in working solution and I find I get a full evening of paper processing,the prints develop faster and it's also a couple bucks cheaper than Ilford Multigrade Paper Developer which is in liquid concentrate form. I found with the Ilford product to go weak on my really quick and I had to make to working solutions in one evening (not cool). I don't mind mixing up the stock solution from powder, I did the same with D-76 and it works well.
