I want to try the 9% of sodium sulfite solution in FG-7 but is there a easy way to convert 45 grams to some easy reference? In other words... If you put 45 grams of sodium sulfite in a Kodak plastic 35mm container would that be about it? Any handy reference would be appriciated.

Sodium Sulfite


I use sodium sulfite in my hypo and have found the following measurements to be reliable.

One level tablespoon of Sodium Sulfite weighs 22.8 grams. One level teaspoon weighs 7.6 grams.

The simpleway to come up with 45 grams is to take one of those small graduates ( 6oz ) and bring the sulfate to a level line on the 1 oz mark. that was recommended in one of the old FG-7 sheeets that was tied by a string to the old brown bottle.I have used it for years this way and never had a prolem. good luck FG-7 is one of the most versitile developers on the market to day.

Terry, I use the FG7 w/sulfite all the time. I use a plain old shotglass up to the 1 oz line! Be sure to wash the glass before your next tequilla party!
