Hi Joe, hope this helps, I've been using LPD for about 15 years & love it. Diluted at 1part LPD to 2 parts water, it works almost exactly like Dektol. At 1:4 however, it provides becomes a warn tone developer (if you are using warn tone paper), with no change in contrast. The only one to do that to the best of my knowledge. Shelf life is a little short, I've kept itat stock strength in a browm glass bottle for a month, when very tightly sealed. Working strength does not to seem to last as long as Dektol or some others, but diluted 1:4, its still very economical to use.

I have used it for years. In my experience it has a long working time and the stock solution lasts for many months in full glass bottles.

Hello out there

Here's a Tip that is so simple and to my way of looking at it bulletproof. Buy or scrounge a 5 liter wine box with the bladder that makes you glader and you can have fun at the same time. When empty take and pull the rubber tap and wash blader with detergent and rinse a number of times mix your developer, pour in the developer force the eccess air out pop the tap back on and put back in original box and your good for a long time. No aireal oxidation. try it you can't go wrong.
