So, I don't use animal products in my brew...does that get me any closer to the bacon wrapped jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and chorizo?

Wait, what? Are vegans against honey now?

EDIT - googling it, it seems honey isn't vegan because it's "forced slavery" . . . I guess soon they'll be protesting to give bees the right to vote.

Honestly, these fads are as confusing as they are retarded.

Aren't all plants pollinated by bees, so isn't that slavery.

The hostility towards vegans here is pretty bizarre. Considering how marginal homebrewing in the wider world, you think we'd be a little more sympathetic to people with weird food preferences.

If bees are forced slavery then couldn't the use of yeast be a form of forced fungal slavery that we incarserat and breed to our own designs?

Bees would do that in the wild anyway. I think the vegan view is more about stealing the honey reserves. I wonder if there are vegan bears that shun other bears for raiding a natural hive for the honey. At least human bee keepers know how much honey the hive actually needs for winter-over and leaves that behind.

It is a actually simply because honey is an animal product, and vegans don't eat any animal products. But some vegans will eat honey.

This has been an educational thread.

I'd like to hear more about the raw/unheated thing. Is that a nutrition thing? (heat destroys vitamins) or a cruelty thing? (burning evil fossil fuels)?

If it's the nutrition thing, I get it for veggies, but not for grain. Raw grain is fairly toxic...it's the malting, mashing, boiling and fermenting that makes it more tolerable to our systems.

Ehh... I'm not hostile towards vegans in general, I'm hostile towards the ones I've met. I know it sounds bad, but I've not met one kind vegan. Ever.

I had a course in college with a girl who was a vegan. It was a philosophy class. A question could be posed about the morality of the seatbelt law and the girl would answer in the same form every time: "I'm a vegan, and..." And she had the most holier-than-thou attitude about everything. Nasty looks any time you expressed a differing opinion. Ugh.

HOW DOES THAT RELATE?

Anyhow, like others had said before, vegan is the easy part. Raw food diet, uhhh, good luck.
