OK there doesn't seem to be any airlock activity. I use gallons with pin holes in them. Gallon has not aired up at all so no activity. Should I add yeast energizer or nutrient?

An easy way to assess for oxidization is to tilt the glass (clear glass ideally) holding the sample against a white background. As you look at the sample in the glass you obviously see the sample, but as you look at the tilted sample where the liquid meets the glass you should notice that the sample appears to have a clear layer of demarkation, almost a halo. If the halo is crystal clear there is no oxidization, if the halo is any other color there is oxidization developing, most commonly seen as a shade of brown.
