I do take notes as I go, but rarely keep them. I tend to think of each printing session as a new adventure and the same negative will likely be printed differently each time.

Heating was really just a last resort before chucking it and making new - probably won't work as I understand 750g/litre is pretty close to a saturated solution which may be why it tends to come out...
