Cheesecloth/Colander with a bowl or Jar and a clean cloth net over the jar opening tightened or sprouting basket
Pick out bad beans, wash your beans and cover your beans in a bowl with water.
Leave your beans to soak overnight.
Next morning rinse your beans, place into damp cheesecloth/into clean jar/ or sprouting basket. If you use the cheesecloth or colander place a bowl underneath which will collect excess water. Cover or make sure no light hits the mung beans, it's important or the beans will get bitter.
In the evening same day, check your mung beans, rinse them again, drain off excess water. Keep in the dark again.
Next morning rinse and repeat and the next day again do the same thing. I like to rinse two times a day making sure the beans remain damp but not soaked in water.
The last day wash your beans so that the green shell falls off. Some will still have their shell on them, that's ok. Store in the fridge in an airtight container or clip bag.
Before using the beans in your food (if you are concerned about bacteria) you can prepare a pan with boiling water and blanch the sprouts for a few seconds to kill off bacteria.
A small amount of Mung Beans is enough because they grow and if you soak too much, you will have too many which you won't need. Less then ½ a cup mung beans will do for the beginning.
The roots grow thicker of the sprouts if you make it tight for them so that the roots don't get to thin out and find space to grow. You can add weight over the mung beans to achieve that (without damaging the mung beans). A friend of mine would use emptied coconut shells as weights.
