growing sprouts

I've begun my first attempt at growing alfalfa sprouts and think I'm going
to have to admit it's a failure.  Any suggestions as to what I might be
doing wrong?  Here's the setup: bought seeds and cheesecloth at the local
HFS, put about 2tsp in a big glass, rubber banded a double layered
cheesecloth around the top, rinse and change water daily, cover w/water far
over the seed level.  Result: about one or two have semi-sprouted.  What am
I doing wrong?  How long should it take?  It's been over five days.  Also,
any experiences w/growing mung and other types of sprouts?

Thanks in advance for any advice!
