Default re-pitch on old yeast and bugs?

I had a sour experiment that didn't work out well due to the wort (really poor 2nd runnings from another beer) that was fermented with us-04 and then had dregs from various wild beers poured into it. I've read that it's fine to re-pitch on some of the wild/sour blends you can buy from wyeast and white labs but what about a us-04 cake mixed with dregs? Would I have to possibly re-pitch some clean yeast to get things going?

This beer has been sitting for about 6 months so I'd like to dump it and then put a fresh batch of wort into the carboy and see what happens.

Go for it. Add some good quality yeast nutes, aerate the crap out of it and roust up the yeast. See what happens.
