You're going to have to take gravity readings. Secondary fermentation is often not vigorous enough to observe airlock activity, especially after 24 hours. Remember, you left the vast majority of the yeast in the primary carboy... secondary is mostly for aging.
That's why I chose to roll with cherry extract when I made this recipe and added it to primary a couple days into fermentation. I wanted to have plenty of lively yeast to chomp on the sugar added from the cherry extract.
Let me know how your batch turns out. I will let you know how mine works too.
What yeast did you use?
