Default Starter in grain bill?

Should the DME used to make a 3 liter starter be included in the grain bill?

Nope. I don't as I will decant most of the starter, then swirl the yeast to pitch it.

Even if you don't decant, you shouldn't include the dme unless you are also including the volume of water contained in the starter.
