Check to see if your airlock is on tight. If it's loose it could actually be fermenting, you just can't see it.

Actually, now that I re-racked it has started pushing...I'm just so used to beer or mead, which I have found is usually a much more busy fermentation. It seems to be moving along now though. Thanks
