          Comments about Ilford Multigrade Developer (Liquid) - 5 Liters:

          I use it for both fiber-based and RC papers. FB paper is affected by a dry-down. RC paper is virtually not. I find that with this developer FB and RC papers are well matched: I figure out exposure, burn, dodge using RC. Then do a final FB print following _exactly_ the same procedure. This takes care of dry-down most of the time.

          Comments about Ilford Multigrade Developer (Liquid) - 5 Liters:

          An excellent developer for Ilford VC (MG) FB paper. Yields deep blacks, and well defined highlights. Moreover, very economical and easy to use. Used for contact printing of LF negatives, and enlarging of 4x5 negatives.
