Hi Everybody!
I would appreciate some "light" in this issue.

I need to shoot with a Kentemere 400 exposed @ 1600 ISO.

I want a really nice grainy look, so I was thinking of developing this film @ 24ºC with D-76 (This is the only developer I have currently at hand)

But that is as far as I can go now....

Any ideas?

Some wisdom anywhere?

Thanks Everybody!

Oh! Sorry!!!
If I may add, I am talking about 35mm Black and White Film.

Thanks again!

do a google search about using Dektol with tri-X.

You are assuming that Dektol is available. XTOL would be a better choice for so many reasons. See:

I don't follow, yeah it will grab some shadow detail, but he wants a grainy look, like old recording film. XTOL won't do that.
