>I see no reason to go to a second yeast, such as a champagne yeast.

If you do, make sure that you use a large starter, and pitch at high
krausen. There isn't enough O2 left in the wort for the yeast
to undergo multiply (and/or the high alcohol kills much of the
active yeast), so it's even more important to get the yeast going
before adding it to the already-fermented wort.

Any authorative information on this? I've heard it before,
but I also thought that all the wyeast were single strains,
except for the Bavarian Wheat yeast.

What's their ph#/address?
