The recommended water-to-rice ratio for cooking instant pot brown rice is 2:1. It means, you would use 2 cups of water for every 1 cup of rice. Therefore, if you are cooking 2 cups of brown rice, you would need 4 cups of water.

It’s always a good idea to check the package instructions for the specific type of brown rice you are using, or to consult a trusted recipe, to determine the correct water-to-rice ratio. Additionally, keep in mind that some factors, such as altitude, temperature, and the type of rice cooker used, may affect the water-to-rice ratio and cooking time. It may be helpful to experiment with different ratios and cooking times to find the best results for your preferences.

How to store brown rice? 

Brown rice can be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place such as your pantry. You can also store it in the refrigerator, which can extend its shelf life, but keep in mind that refrigeration can cause the rice to harden and become less fluffy.

Here are some tips for storing brown rice:

  1. Let the rice cool completely before storing it.
  2. Place the rice in a clean, airtight container with a tight-fitting lid.
  3. Label the container with the date you stored the rice.
  4. Store the container in a cool, dry place, such as your pantry or a cupboard.
  5. If you choose to store the rice in the refrigerator, place it in the back where it is coolest and use it within 6 to 8 weeks.
  6. If you feel any signs of spoilage, such as an off odor or discoloration, throw the rice.

By following these steps, you can help keep your brown rice fresh and preserve its flavor and texture.
