I figure if you leave it cranking for 24 hours, you'll maximize growth, it will stay in aerobic growth rather than fermentation. In 500mL, I believe you'll max out with about 100B cells, like starting with a regular pack of yeast,maybe less than that, I can't find my references right now. So then do your regular starter. That's how I've done dregs, again with good results. The complaint you hear about leaving a starter on the plate for the duration, especially from advocates of SNS, is that the starter wort tastes funny. Fair enough. At this stage, I wouldn't care about that, you just want as much yeast as you can get, to then do a starter by your preferred method.
As for the Brett, I'm thinking the same as you. Don't really want to grow it in proportion now, do you?
EDIT Sorry, way off. 500mL will probably max out around 15B cells. I was thinking what I have after my second stage. Going by data in the White and Jamil book.
