I've never done this kit, but I do make wine. In wine, covering tightly is not as important in the primary so don't worry about that. However, I"m willing to bet that the wine is fermenting. Take an s.g and compare it to the original- if it's lower, then you know it's going! Wine does not usually develop a krausen, so the only way to tell is to take the s.g. readings.
The best thing to do when you make a kit is to follow the directions completely, though- as some kits are designed differently than others.
When are you supposed to put it in secondary?
