    I'd soak them now.

    me too - you have to soak dried pulses properly and then boil them sufficiently - I have poisoned several people in the past (myself more than others, though)

    You won't be oversoaking them by putting them in tonight.

    Apparently the thing with beans is to boil them for ten minutes at the start of cooking, but I seldom see this advice in recipes.
    If I put them to soak tonight and change the water in the morning, they'll in the water for an awfully long time. Noth of us will be out until six tomorrow.

    Ie just done a search and found a soaking time. Eight hours. So, I'll put them to soak tomorrow morning at 7am and they'll be ready to cook at 6pm.

    Thanks for replies!

    It all depends on the age of the beans.
    They won't come to much harm.

    I've put beans to soak and forgotten them before so they had 3 days soaking!

    Didn't they ferment, and, if they did, were the results interesting?
    I've just drained the 'overday' beans and they seem ready.
    Now the adventure begins. Brazilian cooking is not my speciality - not that I have one.
