Default Please help me add yeast to bottle an 11% ABV RIS

I brewed this on March 30 this year. I racked to secondary on May 14. It has been sitting since. I have not taken a gravity reading, because I don't want to mess with it until I'm ready to bottle.
According to BeerSmith, I want to add 2.5oz. of corn sugar to the beer before bottling.
I'm pretty sure I will need to add more yeast also. I used US-05 for fermentation, and that is what I have on hand now. I'm just trying to figure out how much to add to my bottling bucket. I figure I should hydrate it, pour it in and stir it.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I stumbled upon this article a while ago looking for the same answers as you. I've been using it for high and low gravity brews that I have filtered and still wanted to bottle. Use the chart at the bottom and you won't go wrong. Hope this helps you. Cheers

Awesome! That is very helpful. Thanks for sending it. I'll let you know how it works out. I plan on aging until Christmas.
