So, I accidentally purchased some dark DME. It isn't black or anything, but it is a rich brown color. Anyway, I made under a half gallon yeast starter for my IPA, but I'm worried the starter will affect the color and flavor of my IPA recipe. Has anyone had experience with this? Is a dark brown 40 oz. yeast starter really going to affect my 5.5 gallon Copper colored IPA? Any help would be much appreciated.
