Using Wheat DME in starter for non-wheat beer?

What does anyone think of using Briess Bavarian Wheat DME to make a yeast starter for a non-wheat Ale?
I have some leftover Wheat DME that I would like to make use of, but I’m not planning a wheat beer anytime soon. My gut reaction is that it’s not a good idea but I’d like another opinion (or two, or three, :slight_smile: ).

Sugar is sugar… The character that the type of grist adds to it makes it unique… I don’t see why it will make any difference…
One quart of wheat/yeast to 20 quarts of… barley sugar (maltose?) ain’t gonna be noticed. Sneezles61
