Making your own beans

Are you refrigerating the beans while you're soaking them?  I'd think
leaving them at room temperature would make them go bad.  I make my
own beans all the time, and they're fine.  Here's what I do:Rinse
Soak in water overnight (at room temperature).
If I don't have time to cook them right away, I drain them then
refrigerate them.
Cook the beans within 24 hours.
I change the water twice, once after soaking and once after cooking.

Hope this helps.
