There is someone selling 125ml bottles on ebay.

Wonderful developer, beautifully rich tonality and super edge sharpness.  Lots of grain, but I see there are formulas that add stuff to smudge the grain a bit.  I always used it straight.  On 4x5 sheet film it had a lot of the characteristics of ABC Pyro except there was no tanning and hence no corresponding contrast bump.  It is probably the closest you can get to the look from the old thick emulsion sheet films, using modern thin emulsions.  Don't forget the eyedropper and a 20ml precision graduated cylinder.

www.silverprint.co.uk is where I get mine from.  It's now labelled RO9 since the demise of Agfa but it's all good.  I ought to order some more actually....

Thank you for the tip, I still have some 10 rolls of the Kodak B&W Infrared in the freezer which I used to use with Rodinal with some mouthwatering and dead sharp grain and a different tonality than the usual D-76 combo plus the added acutance (now called edge oversharpening lol,

Post them up when you are done then - I've nver played with IR as it doesn't suit my work but I love the results I've seen.

You can also mix your own Rodinal, the formula is public:

Some history from an old AGFA webpage:

Sounds interesting.
What does it do?
And what is the T? I can find info about EDTA, but not about EDTA T
