I read an article from some research in Japan a couple of years ago that claims that the nutritional value of brown rice is actually enhanced by presoaking - well, they were looking at long presoaks (8-16 hours). But, I'm sure that even a shorter presoaking would be good, too.
I wash mine under cold running water to get any dust off, then soak it for a couple of hours - and use the soaking water to cook it in.
