I stumbled across this technique online somewhere. My brown rice was not turning out fluffy like I wanted it to. Making it this way is easier, in my opinion, and it turns out fluffier without the stickiness.
To make larger quantitites of rice make it with a ratio of 1:4. 1 cup rice to 4 cups of water.
