A hop shortage of a different sort

It would seem that my hop stash is getting low. I was down in the brewery last night getting the materials together for the House Pale Ale and discovered that I only had an ounce of Challenger hops in the freezer. Looks like I'm going to have to mix it up a little bit, as my stash is dwindling. So tonight I'll be brewing the Pale ale with Northern Brewers for the late additions.
The yeast starter that I put together Tuesday night isn't really doing a whole lot right now. I'm probably going to ditch it tonight if there isn't any krausen in the vessel.
Here's what needs to get done tonight:
  • Brew the Pale Ale
  • Rack the Chocolate Stout to secondary fermentation
  • Rack the Alt to final packaging
  • Finalize the grist for the maximum capacity brew
  • Take hop inventory

I think I might have some krausen in my vessel I just did not know what it was at first glance
