Dear sweet baby Jesus... I'd be interested to know how this turns out.

It looks like you're using Beersmith by the looks of your brewsheet printout? If so, at least you can use that timer to remember when to put in everything during the boil. Good luck!

Come on now! You can't find four more ingredients, you have to use four brands of bottled water?!?

Multiple yeast strands? A doughnut in the mash? You could really cheat and use a pre-blended hop variety although that would be worse than the bottled water.

Maybe 1450 and wlp007.

This is needlessly complicated. You are a good man for doing this for your wife.

Add in an ounce of 4 different sugars to get you to a real 40 ingredients instead of the bottled water bull.

Put it all in a haggis bag, steam it up and serve it with a 80 shilling.

Anyone try the Bells 10000. It supposedly had 100 different fermentables and 60 hop varieties. 40 is nothing.

No but it sounds like its definetely worth a try. Im sure its gonna be good
