Default Brett Brux WLP 650. Pitch it all?

I am making a Saison with White Labs Saison II yeast during primary and after racking to secondary, plan on pitching my vial of 650. I have heard it is necessary to underpitch Brett. With that being said, should I pitch only half of the vial or just go ahead and dump the whole thing in? Thanks.

Chances are your underpitching with the whole vial anyway, WL only puts around 100mil cells in there "wild" vials.
