All of these good tips plus use yeast nutrient and oxygenate well before pitching yeast and again about 12+ hours later. Those yeasties are going to be working in a high alcohol environment so give them every advantage to be strong and healthy for the job.

Two cans of Fast Pitch and some yeast nutrient into 32 oz. of distilled water directly in a fermentor.  Add yeast.  Wait until high krausen and rack wort into the fermentor.
