Brett B

Trying out some wild yeasts for the first time...
Is there a need to make a starter with Brett B when adding to secondary?

From the Milk the Funk wiki:
When pitching just Brettanomyces from a commercial pure or blended culture and no other microbes, it is recommended to make a starter for the culture. If the Brettanomyces is being pitched into secondary, no starter is necessary unless the brewer suspects that the Brettanomyces has lost a lot of viability due to age, heat exposure, etc., or prefers higher cell count pitches
