    Evening all!

    Right quick question.......i made a yeast starter for a wheat beer (to be brewed tomorrow) but i monged it and used regular dme for the starter wort instead of wheat. Is this gonna affect the flavour?

    no shouldn't and its advisable not to have a 100% wheat beer anyway, you need at least some barley if not half

    If you're really concerned, chill the starter (that yeast does not like to floculate), then pour most of the liquid off the yeast cake before pitching. But if you're starter is 1/2 liter (1 pint) across 19 liters (5 gallons) of wort, you're talking about a change in grist of about 2.5% in the direction of barley (0.5l/19.5l). You'll never notice it if you dump everything in.
