Ale in sourdough starter

> Yesterday I got the notion to make sourdough pita
> pockets. So last night I put about 1 cup sourdough starter into a jar along with 1 cup flour and 1 cup ale, well after about 6 hours it was almost over the top of the jar, so I chilled it in the fridge overnight.
> This morning after it came back to room temperature I made it into dough and made 6 pita's and two loaves, picture of loaves as below.
I actually made my regular white bread recipe but added the ale starter instead of water

> Pitas have gone as a couple friends came in at lunch time so I stuffed the pitas with diced Gouda cheese, lettuce, diced tomato and red pepper and crispy bacon. so no picture :-(.qahtan
