Like so many others, this is my first mead, made yesterday. Only substitutions were that I also juiced the orange, and I used Lavlin EC1112. So far, no movement at all in the airlock, no foaming/bubbling. Is that worrisome???

This is the Joe's recipe thread. Have you seen the original recipe? You've diverged from the original so far that your post would probably be better elsewhere.
For your first mead, I would strongly suggest that you stick to a tested recipe. This is a really good one.

I used the bread yeast, and I had airlock activity within 30 minutes. In fact, two months later, the air lock STILL bubbles about once every 2 minutes...

I don't think it is that far off the original. . . let him post jerk.

As for the issue. It isn't really an issue. Let it relax, it will start on it's own time.

I posted here because I was following Malkore's version of the original JAOM (page 1, post #10), and because so many others made the same/similar substitutions.
Anyway, I'll give it time like WIP said, and see how it goes.

I made mine a couple of nights ago. Had to sub ground cinnamon and cloves though. Other than that, exact recipe. The yeast was slower to start the mead I made last week using champagne yeast but after a day it was going pretty good.

Hope it turns out well. Not as sweet and citrus as I thought it would be coming out of the airlock but I'm not sure that even accounts for anything.
