I use a method similar to Bang's except I bring the beans to a boil and then shut the heat off and let soak for two hours. Works pretty good for me!

I've always soaked my beans over night.. how do you quick soak them?????

I cover the beans with enough water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes......then remove from heat cover and let sit for one hour.
