Default Double Yeast?

I am looking at a higher gravity recipe on Austin Homebrew's website (a Hennepin clone). It recommends double pitching the yeast.

I have two question really.

First, is double pitching necessary?

Second, to reduce the cost of double pitching, can I use one liquid (Wyeste Abbey Ale 1214) and one dry yeast (Safdrew T-58)?

Any help for a relative newbie would be greatly appreciated.

For high gravity brews, more yeast is a good idea. If you want to use liquid yeast, make a starter.

You could use a dry and a liquid yeast, but the dry yeast will (most likely) have more yeast cells and dominate the ferment.
