Prepare Your Ingredients
You will need the following to prepare 2 quarts & 11/2 pints of soya milk:
1 full cup of grounded soybeans
11 cups of water( to be added 2 or 3 cups at the same time)

Any other flavor you like
Soak the Soya
Get the soya beans cleaned up and soak it for about 10-16 hours in water. You can also get rid of the hulls by kneading them and using water to flush the loosed hulls. This hulls removal makes the entire process of extraction more efficient. Another alternative is to crack them before soaking. Soya bean hulls come off easily and can be easily flushed away. You need less soaking time of about 6-8 hours when you make use of the cracked soya beans.
Heating and Grinding
The enzymes responsible for the development of beany flavor are destroyed by heating the soya beans. The best way to get them heated without destroying the flavor is by putting the soaked soya bean into a microwave for about 2 minutes.
Pour the whole water used for soaking the soya bean into your blender, before pouring the whole soya beans into your blender. Add about four more cups of water and keep blending until a smooth paste is formed. Then get a cheesecloth and pour the blended mixture into the clothe and hold it over a large pot. Remove as much water as you can by squeezing. After squeezing for a while, pour back the soybean left in the cheesecloth back into your blender and add about 3 more cups of water and keep blending until you get a smooth paste. Repeat the straining process using the cheesecloth. Pour back the soybean pulp into your blender one more time and add 2 cups of water, bringing the entire added water to 11 cups. Then strain the mixture for the last time.
