It will probably take a little while before it even bubbles once. The yeasties are mostly slumbering right now and racking reduced their numbers. It should eventually pick up again, but won't be vigorous. I rarely see my secondaries bubble. It taunts me with "Airlock Pressure" and then probably releases when I leave the room. haha

,i actually just walked out to the garage and it bubbled for me,then i stood there for a few minutes and it did nothing,lol. How long do you usually let it sit in secondary?,or do you just go by gravity readings?.

I only add sugar to bring my gravity up above 1.050 and then use nottingham ale yeast. Mine's "beer-ish" ABV (6%?) and it's not bone dry. For my tastes, I just let it go till it's clear and then bottle it. A month maybe? There's a lot of variables with the process so each person's brew will be different.
