Is it necessary to rouse the yeast from time to time to keep the little yeasties working in these hi gravity beers?

Thanks Jim

So with these Hi gravity beers do you typically have to back add yeast to get them to carbonate.  And if so is it necessary to use the same yeast.

Thanks Jim

A little about myself, my boss had me over and we brewed a all grain lager.  I started collecting my equipment then last year brewed a 5 gallon all grain oatmeal stout. It turned out great.  I've got 2 bottles left.  Next I brewed a scottish ale and it turned out on the thin side but it got drank and I believe I can improve on it.  By the 3rd batch I went to 10 gallon batches and it was a hefeweizen.  I'm working on getting set up for kegging and the wifes been on me to brew her something.  So probably a stout is next but I wanted to get something hi gravity in the fermentor as It looks like it'll be in there awhile.

Thanks guys for the input.  How about we say 1.060 for the bottom and either all grain or extract would be fine.  I'm a real new brewer.  I started all grain as thats how my buddy showed me to do it.  I could convert the recipe from extract to all grain if I needed to.  I've made lower gravity beers but would like to attempt a hi gravity brew, but I would really like ideas from people that have been successful and liked there results.  I'd be willing to try any style, I'd like to get going on a barleywine and any other of ya'lls favorites.

Guys as a new brewer I was wondering if any of ya'll would be interested in posting a few of your favorite Hi gravity recipes.   I know recipes are easy to come by, but many times you wonder if you're taking a chance on who's posting  ( sometimes you never see them post anything else but recipes) or they may not give any feedback of how it turned out or if it was any good.  I'd appreciate it as a new brewer.  And so would the wife as those are her favorite.

Thanks in advance.

Jim
