Let's pretend you can only have three ingredients of each class for the rest of your life, but you could have as much as you needed.

Which 3 grains?
Which 3 hops?
Which 3 yeasts?
Which 3 Adjuncts?

I'll go first:

Grains: 2 Row, Caramel 40, Wheat
Hops: Amarillo, Cascade, Hallertau
Yeast: 1056 (American Ale), 3068 (Weiheinstephan), 3944 (Belgian Witbier)
Adjuncts: Corn, Honey, Flaked Wheat

BTW a lot of you are listing roasted barley as an adjunct. Wouldn't you consider that as a grain? Specialty grain, yes, but grain nonetheless
