Default Homemade Yeast blends (Mead + Beer)

Hi guys, i have posed this question a couple times more specifically to my Altbraggot that i am planning, but i want to branch out because i have thought of a couple other applications i may pursue with the answers. So the question is thoughts on blending yeasts right now in particular would be the blending of a Dusseldorf Alt Yeast and ICV-D47 in an altstyle braggot where i would add the dusseldorf at the start then introduce the ICV-D47 at 1 week in to finish the attentuation rack it after it reaches a month, then put it into its cold brew period for the remaining month before it clears/ i bottle it.

I figure for 1 gallon batch i will do
2lbs of wildflower honey
.5lb DDME OR .25lb Wheat DME and .25 DDME
.1 oz of german tettnang in tea in primary
.1 oz of warrior in tea in primary
.1 oz of spalt pellets. dry hopped at secondary/ lagering period

With your guys help i want to see if i can use this technique of blending yeasts to create some truly great brews, I am thinking about expanding this to pyments, using mead yeasts and wine yeasts, as well as various other braggots like my citrus wheat braggot, a saison-like braggot, Caramelized malt and rye braggot, Bocheted braggot, and many more.

I think this technique will be most helpful in the terms of braggots because i want to be able to produce the proper beer flavors, and have them harmonize with the mead flavors and also obtain proper attentuation that a beer yeast alone would probably not reach.

Thanks, any stories, ideas, or further questions are welcome!

I make wine, and I make beer, but I've never gone down the mead/braggot path. Sounds interesting though.
