I'm certainly not offended! As I said, your points are very good.

Right now my kitchen runs at almost 88 degrees F. Early morning processing is my only option until cooler weather moves in.

I used to process B&W for about 20 years but stopped about some 20 years ago when I lost interest because I have other priorities. My experience with water quality has not been so fortunate as some of you. I was able to positively correlate problems with water sources. As a scientist, I eventually invested in constant temperature water baths, pH probe, and a RO system with ion exchange bed. When I switched to digital, I also switched to digital dark room. The only thing I kept was the RO water system.

Are there any definitive guides for developing BW medium format film at home you can point me to? Many I'm aware of are out of date or too brief, or utilize technology I am not interested in buying (dryers, washers, etc). It might be nice to watch a video or listen to a podcast of the proper way to do this enough times to absorb the information. Thanks!

I'd be cautious of some videos I've seen on Youtube. One guy shows you how to develop film using D-76 but his agitation profile he uses is completely wrong for Kodak's dev times! It's an agitation profile for stand development in Rodinal which is completely contrary to how Kodak says to do it!

Both Kodak and Ilford have a step-by-step guide to developing film you should be able to find. Have you read any of them? Here is a link to Ilford's Beginner's Guide

Thanks again, Tuco. Just what I needed!
