Is it in a bucket or a carboy? If it's in a bucket, you probably won't see any activity. They usually aren't airtight.

Well, I just checked the SG on the mead. Its been about 4 weeks. Forgot to take the initial SG, but 3 weeks in, it was 1.050. As was pointed out above, given the recipe we used the starting SG should be around 1.070. Tonight the SG was 1.008!! Looks like we got the fermentation going. Thanks to all that helped us with advice. Will let you all know how the final product turns out.
