The basic rule of thumb I’ve found is this: soak dry beans overnight, then 3-4 days later (total of 4-5 days, starting after the night you soak) you can eat them. Beans are different sizes and bigger ones take longer to sprout.

Step 1: Soak dry (preferably local, organic) beans of your choice overnight in glass or plastic container (Glass is better).

Step 2: The next morning, drain and rinse beans.

Step 3: Cover the beans with a paper towel and put a rubber band around outside of the jar.
