I just wanted to inform OP that I am very thankful for the update provided (post #4). I have the EXACT same issue going on right now. 1728 strain isn't starting and it is 5 months old just like yours. Your post gives me hope for my starter!

Thanks!!

How did this turn out? Unfortunately for me, my batch ended up infected somehow.

I had similar with some old 1728. Saw virtually no activity and it didn't even smell like it had fermented anything. Piitched it anyway and it seems to have done enough to ferment my wee heavy to 9.5%. Too early to say whether it fought off any competition for infection though.
