Well, when I finally had a chance to check on the beer there was no krausen. Not even a hint of foam. I aerated it again and pitched one packet of W34/70 into each fermenter. Thanks to everyone for their advice!
Cheers,
Brandon

I bet it would have gotten going too, but I think under-aeration is the issue here.

Your slurry was definitely not too old (2 days after harvesting it is just fine) but in dire need of O2 which it may not have gotten enough of with your pumping method.
