From what i can tell this is an imperial stout and will require months of aging in order for it to blend all the flavors

Do you bottle or keg? If you keg I would skip the secondary and just move it right to the keg after its done fermenting. I let my big beers sit in primary for at least a month. If I was bottling that I would probably secondary for maybe 60 or 90 days, then bottle and not look at them for at least a year.

That first yeast blend contains Brett, that's the reason for the really long secondary. I have no experience with sour beers, but don't you risk bottle bombs bottling too early with Brett?

Yes it is an imperial stout.

I do keg some and bottle some too, most Likely I would bottle it

So if I do.
1 month primary
1 month secondary

Would that not be enough time?

I don't make sour beers so I am not familiar with that type of yeast so someone else would have to chime in if brett takes a long time to finish fermenting. For a normal yeast that finishes off in a month that would have been the schedule I would have used.

If I don't do it as a sour will the fermentation time change?

Yes I am not positive but am pretty sure if your doing it as a sour you would primary it with the s-04 then transfer it to secondary and add the brett. So if your not adding the brett you would only need to primary technically. You may still want to secondary for a month before bottling. Then just age for a long time in the bottles.
