we should all just start sneaking meat products into all the vegan diets and brew them porterhouse porters.

I know a guy who believes this way, I just think it's silly.
Does he eat fruits and veggies? Those are living organisms.

So you wouldn't have to worry too much about fat messing up head retention, but i'd still use campden tablets on the vegans before racking the beer onto them in secondary.I bet the beer will taste like patchouli.

A vegan beer though is not too difficult to do, just brew as normal then instead of using gelatin clarifiers you use something like Irish Moss as your clarifier, and that would be the only real step that may cause issues for a vegan in a homebrew situation. Unless they see the ingestion of yeast as being an issue, then they just need to give up on life.

An all grain beer really doesn't leave much to not be considered vegan.

Vegan is the avoidance of animal or animal by products, yeast are fungi - beer is vegan unless you use certain fining agents like gelatin or isinglass

Raw however would be the issue, I believe the temps used in kilning would no longer constitute raw even if you found a means to not boil

This conversation is entertaining, now if you'll excuse me, I'm going back to my steak dinner with a side of veal parmesan

Yeast is vegan. No animals, no brains, no muscles, no feelings, etc. Most homebrew is or can be vegan without animal fining agents. Just make sure there is no honey.
