You pitched a single packet into a 5.5% abv wort with no O2 (no I'm not recommending you aerate). It is going to take some time for the yeast to do anything. It is probably not going to reproduce, so you are stuck with the population you pitched. many will probably die due to the adverse conditions, but billions will survive. They will take time to adjust. I'd wait a few days before making any decision on whether they are doing anything.
