Efke 25 ASA, Aculux 3 - time??

    I'm googling, but I can't find a chart that tells me how much time is required to develop the EFKE 25 ASA film properly.
    I found one chart ( http://www.digitaltruth.com/chart/search_text.php?Developer=Aculux ) that sort of hints that the EFKE films want a 1+14 dilution, and if there's any sort of linearity to it, the 25 ASA should only be given 4 minutes (100 ASA: 10 mins, 50 ASA: 7 mins), but that seems awfully little to me.

    Has anyone developed EFKE 25 (135) in Aculux 3?

    OK, since I'm impatient, curious and, well, stupid, I decided to make a 1+14 dilution of the Aculux 3 and leave the film in there for 5'15" (that was a time I just made up), agitating a little more than I do the Tri-X.

    I left the fix in a little longer than normal, and rinsed looooong.

    It's now hanging to dry, and it looks OK. Eager to scan, I'm now really thinking of making one of those drying cabinets with a kickass fan in it. :biggrin:
