I contacted WYeast concerning the yeast count in their "wild" packs, this is the reply I received. I plan on stepping some Brett
up to a lager rate as per Chad's recommendations soon. I emailed Chad concerning this and a few other questions concerning all Brett
fermentations; he stated is is currently out of town and would fire off a reply soon.

For the Brett strains, the count is 75 billion viable cells total / pack. For the 5335 and 5733, the count is approximately 20 billion cells total/pack. The counts on the 3763 are proprietary. Please let me know if you have other questions.

I read an email reply from White Labs to the same question some where online. They said the cell count in their Brett vials was 50 billion.

For the Brett primary fermentation I'm doing now I used Yeast Calc, 50 billion cells, and the ale pitching rate. Dropping the initial cell count for an ale and using a lager pitching rate give similar results.
