No. Others sprout the same bean with no trouble. We use the same source of beans. They use better water, sprout inside, use plastic sprouters, and have faultless beans. l used to have faultless beans but sprouting outside in the cold weather and bad water combination has been too much and ruined everything. lt has been such a nightmare that l have been throwing them out because it takes far to long to sort out the good beans from the rotted beans. Besides, the tails are barely sprouting on any of them at the moment. l aren't too worried, l know l will find a solution.

If your tap water is safe to drink I can't imagine why the beans would be rotting.
ln warmer weather all the various mung go well. Non organic even sprout better. But sometimes the mung from various companies go silly and rot batch after batch. The aduki's are so bad that l have shelved them for the moment.
Have you tried various sources of mung beans to see if the all perform the same?
l have a solution coming up in a month because l am ordering some special sprouters where l will be able to keep inside. Until then l will have to deal with much inconvenience.
Any way you can warm an area for them if it is cooler temps keeping them from sprouting?
So do l. Mung and aduki are some of my major carb meals and l miss them soooo much. At the moment l am stuck eating lots of sprouted peas and grains until l sort out the problem. Fortunately sprouted lentils allow me to keep my sanity.
I hope you soon get it sorted out.
They both are awesome foods. l miss mung beans so incredibly much.
Mung are about my favorite sprouts. I've taken a recent liking to lentils.
Lentils need to be sprouted much longer so the uric acid is considerably lowered. Never undersprout a lentil, and always sprout in the dark so they don't go all woody.
I like them best when the radicle has just emerged though, and mung when they are a considerably longer. first time I tried lentil I let them grow long and did not like...woody and bitter.
