I would just keep checking the gravity, as long as it keeps moving it should be ok. I haven't used Avante, but based on what others are reporting, it should finish the job. Transitioning to another yeast is difficult at high alcohol, you have to go through the steps to aclimate the yeast slowly. I wouldn't bother unless it is absolutely necessary, even then, I'd probably first just try to get a 5gal pail started by tossing in some light lees from something that was just pressed and finished strong, if that gets going then pitch it into the whole batch. Obviously you can move ahead with the full restart procedure if that fails. Hopefully you won't need any of this screwing around.
