yea i know. i haven't seen him on here in a while. in his absence i guess ill make the usual disclaimer post then.
an airlock is not a fermentation indicator its a pressure release valve. buckets are well known for not sealing airtight. the CO2 is escaping around the lid instead of through your airlock. the only real indicator of fermentation is a drop in SG. if your worried use your hydrometer and check. if its gone down then you have fermentation.
