ADOX/Efke Beutler High Acutane Film Developer

Here's a link to the formula for Beutler Developer. I need to get some sodium carbonate.

This is said to be the best developer for ADOX single emulsion films.

Some similar recipes here.

I need to do some research on the film and the chemistry of this - but it seems that ADOX is more like the sort of film used in the 50s, and more able to give the kind of look I'm trying to get. I've got a couple of rolls to try out, (a 25iso, and a 50).

I seem to have stumbled into my own genre. This is the Flickr set. Both the content and the title are provisional, but the idea is engendered.
