PS Have you heard of the band the Da Yoopers?
No- using amarillo at 40 minutes would give you more bittering, but no hops flavor or aroma. If you have more (different) hops, you could "save" the amarillo for flavoring where it is awesome, and use a neutral flavored bittering hop variety.
I never used Beer Calculus, but I would assume it's ok.
I have heard of Da Yoopers, and seen them around a few times. Funny stuff!
