Ryuji Suzuki on the University of Saskatchewan Alt-Process list is an apparent expert on homebrew emulsion.

I should mention that Ron Mowrey over on APUG (user name PhotoEngineer) has begun teaching workshops on emulsion making and coating. Ron's a retired Kodak engineer. There is a new forum category on APUG dedicated to emulsion making.

But, no: I haven't attempted emulsion making.

Ron or another retired Kodak-er reportedly has the patent on Kodak's Rapid Fixer.

what fixer would you use on this emulsion, a rapid fixer? or something more gentle like hypo?
