I love my pressure cooker so far. Lots of questions.

I love red beans/pink beans/almost any dried bean.

I soak my beans overnight and drain.

Some bean recipies call for 3 cups of water for every cup of beans. If I was doing this on top of my stove (the old way) I would cover the beans w/1" of water and cook away. Does is seem like too much water for PC cooking beans?

(Normally I make red beans w/loads of peppers-spices)

Normally I don't throw away the cooking water, it gets processed into whatever I'm cooking. (Soaking water IS thrown away.)
