I assume you are talking about the bug mix.
Just pitch the vial. Do not make a starter.
Those vials have a small amount of yeast. They are designed to allow the bugs to get started before the yeast builds up it's population and starts to make alcohol. If you make a starter, you will be building up the yeast disproportionately to the brett, Lacto, and Pedio, and when you pitch, the yeast will take off, leaving the rest to struggle to build their populations. Result: Probably less sour, and certainly will take longer to get there.
