Problem with sodium ascorbate+ Rodinal : LUSENET : B&W Photo: Alternative Process : One Thread

I added 4g of sodium ascorbate to 1 litre of Rodinal diluted 50 to 1 as suggested in an interesting article on reducing the grain in Rodinal by Ed Buffaloe and it actually markedly increased grain when I tried it. Could this be because of the difficulty I experienced attempting to accurately measuring such small quantities of sodium ascorbate? Is there anyone out there able to suggest to this Aussie photographer a means of measuring that is not costly? Would appreciate some help.

You would probably have better luck posting this in the Film and Processing forum. You'd get almost much faster results. lm%20%26%20Processing
