Thank you Richard and Karyn. Actually, it seems I do all the things mentioned as best practice in that Epicurious except the short soak. I'm a long soaker. (But depends a lot on the bean. They were doing pintos and I find they do better with a shorter soak...) I never heard to throw away the soaking water until recently. Granted, it was a long long soak and (OK, maybe the water was a bit smelly too but) it had never occurred to me that's what some people do every time.

I had also still never considered that one reason to soak them is to get rid of something (what?).
