Re: converting anhydrous to mono...?
OK, so since most of these thread replies specify Pot Carb anhydrous...this must be the one to use (plus I can't find mono anywhere, as Richard has already stated), and that is indeed what I used.
However, I used 398g rather than the 450g the recipe called for since I made a possibly erroneous conversion from mono to anhydrous.
That being said, my final ph was 6, which is OK.
I'll just have to try it on a small 4x5 print tomorrow and see what happens. Either way, I DO know what my mixture is right now and can always adjust it later.
Also, as Loris mentioned, since many people replenish their dev through the years, it's not an exact science...(hmm, famous last words...)
Thanks to all for your help and advice...

I'd bet it's like you said. Since I don't do develop-out pt/pd I don't have an idea how much effect has slight changes in the developer concentration to the development action / result... OTOH, thinking about people using their developer *for years* only replenishing the lost volume with fresh and filtering occasionally (not even mentioning the accumulation of dissolved unexposed sensitizer!), it doesn't look like something of exact science anyway...
