When do you use the vinegar recipe called for?

Editor's Note: I added the vinegar and a few other things to the instructions. Personally I would rinse after draining the beans. Add the water and bring to a boil, turn off the heat an let them sit for an hour, then drain again and follow the instructions. I'd be worried that the beans would not be done in an hour.
