A new 2-bath developer for black and white film

Discussing a topic at the Flickr group «The new Caffenol Home and Other fun of Alchemy», the member Giorgio suggested a 2-bath developer where the first bath was a mix of parodinal and vitamine C and the second bath the alkali borax. I started trying and came to the conclusion that the following recipe works very well and I am using the same bath A since one month now.

Bath A:

100 ml Parodinal
30 g Vitamine C
WTM 1 liter

Bath B:

50g/liter solution of Sodium Carbonate
1g/liter Potassium Bromide

PS - This recipe will be added to my collection of experimented recipes here.
