Looks good. Can this recipe be made in the slowcooker?

I forgot to add, we add baking soda to the beans as they soak over night. That might help with the gas people were talking about, but not sure?

All the women in my family for generations reserve cooking water without incident. The water has starch which acts as a binder. Any Chef will tell you that when making pasta, you reserve 1-Cup of cooking water and add it to the sauce you are preparing. Same goes for beans.

I thought it interesting some say don't use leftover liquid. My dad has made homemade refried beans for years, and has always used the leftover simmering liquid to help with blending, and has never had any health or taste affect...

Yes, I agree, you must not use the water that the beans were soaked in.

You must NEVER, NEVER, NEVER use the water in which the beans were soaked. NEVER !!!! The acids that blend into the water is what produces gas. You must use clean water.

I notice you are using Penzey Spices (I use that compny myslf). As for the salt issue: 2t would mean 2t of KOSHER rather than granulated, right?
