35mm
I just (accidentally) got back into 35mm b&w development. I did it years ago with pretty good success. However, I need some help with the steps involved.
I have 20 rolls of Rollei ATP 1.1 (35mm) that I shot at the 32 rated ISO.
I heard that you can use R09 (Rodinal) for the fixer for this film. Is R09 Spezial preferred for this paticular film? I also heard that R09 is more forgiving if your tap water is not very pure. Also, can I use Clayton Odorless Fixer for my fixer (this seems like a good deal as I am working in a cramped space).

Mostly though, I need advice on the specific steps for development with times and at what temperatures. For example:

How long to develop/agitate/temperature
How long to fix
Is stop bath necessary or recommended?
Wash the film under normal tap? temp?
Washing chemicals?
I remember using Foto-flow.

It's really been a long time since I have done any 35mm film developing. So any help in this area would be much appreciated.

You can not use Rodinal for an E.I. of 32 for this film. You need the special low contrast developers RLC or on a higher iso rate Rollei ATP-DC.

When using Rodinal the E.I. is around iso 12 and the dilution of Rodinal 1+150. I made some pretty good 35mm development in Rodinal 1+150 but as already said: iso 12.

You must use an acid type fix for this film and a stop.
The fix time is very short: 30S - 60S so can use a paper dilution fixer.

The film in a low contrast developer is very sensitive for building up an iron complex which will give you black dots inside the emulsion. So use destilled water for your chemicals.
Use room temperature for the chemicals.
