      Just a suggestion - I used to think the "use by" label on packets of brown rice was just a legal requirement rather than something that was really necessary. After trying to sprout some brown rice way past it's use by date - and failing (it never sprouted and just started to smell after a time) - and also successfully sprouting newer brown rice - I realized that it does indeed have a shelf life - and if used past this time it is nutritionally poor and may even contribute to disease (natural oil in the germ going rancid) - so you might try to sprout some of your stash to see if it's still ok to eat.

      --------------------------------------------

      Contrary to what I said earlier in this thread - brown rice is becoming more of a staple for me now - especially since I've found brown basmati locally - and am soaking / sprouting nearly everything I eat now (if it's a grain or other seed type product like beans) - even my rice.

      I also said earlier I didn't see the harm in cooking with the same water the grain is soaked in - but now retract that position as I've learned that the water used to soak contains anti-nutrients and is better thrown out rather than used for cooking as well.

      I have recently learned that certain countries do things to certain seeds/grains to make them un-sproutable. This is criminal, imo, but if one finds that a bunch of fresh seeds/grains do not sprout - then vote with your purchasing power and never buy from that company again - and let them know, too.

      brown rice has fats in it and the fats can go rancid after a while.
