      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.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.
