Default Cider wont start fermenting

If I could get a little advice...I have a gallon that I put up to ferment 4 days ago. Nothing. My og is 1.062 I used a red star champagne yeast. it was well aerated.

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
