Yeast and Fermentation / Wy1318 and us-05

I'm brewing an English barley wine and was thinking of mixing these two to help attenuation.  Am I making a mistake?  I was going to make a 2L starter with a smack pack and a half pack of the 05.  Good plan?  The wort is planned at 1.10.

I am seriously thinking about kegging  some of my beer now.  Is this the right way to go for the $$?  Maybe I can catch it on sale in the near future.  Maybe piece it together cheaper?  Other good options?  Thanks all.

I Brewed a 1.060 wort yesterday.  I pitched a pack of 001 pure pitch.  No starter at 2pm.  Pitched at 70 degrees.  Then my temp went to 59 unexpectedly.  I took it out of the cooler to warm back up a bit this morning.  I saw no airlock activity at that time.  Now I see a very small amount of activity.  I took a gravity reading just now and didn't see a change.  I have cooled my temp down to 60 in the past with no issues but I used a starter.  Could that be the issue?  Should I pitch another pack of 001?
