I've been told by Vinnie that the Temptation is the best one to 'culture' his yeasts out of.... so I'd use that one.

Yes, some dregs from our sour beers will work. Temptation is usually the best as it doesn’t have any fruit. You can grow it up in some low gravity / low hopped wort and apple juice (unfiltered). The ratio is 1 part apple juice to 4 parts wort.

I used sanctification dregs on a gallon of dunkelweizen wort, no sacch added. 4 months and its quite tart, a little acetic and fruity with a little funk. Probably stepping it up tfo a 5 gal when i package it soon, since it tastes like its nearly done.

Quite sure theres no yeast in sanctification.

Huh? Am I reading this right?

You pitched Santification dregs, it soured, but there is no yeast in it?

There is yeast in Sanctification, the Drie strain of Brett. It gets finished with bacteria in the fermenter and then a fresh pitch of Brett for bottling.

Is that what the "Dr. Dre Brettanomyces" is? And if so... is it the same as WLP644 - Brett B Trois?

I'd be concerned growing any of the dregs from his sours except Beatification, which isn't pitched with wine yeast. The strain they use, RP-15, is a "killer" and if you get it going it can kill any brewer's yeast you pitch. Not a huge deal if you are just dumping the dregs in, but not a great idea if you want to build up a starter and pitch it.
