You're probably going to find a wide array of active yeast and bacteria, especially early on. Some sugar-eating yeast will form pellicles, as will most bacteria. I'd guess you have dozens of active lifeforms in there right now. Some have probably died off from lack of nutrients, ph and alcohol by this point.

+1 Does it still smell good? Pitch some into a crab apple blonde and let it go nuts!

It smells wonderful, sour--and no ass whatsoever.  Gonna make a crab apple blonde like you suggested and cross my fingers.
Well...I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer

I may have too try this lots of orchards around me, my girlfriends dad has a couple.  Did you cut up the apples?

I have 5 apple and 2 pear trees that I just planted but it will be a couple years before I see any fruit from them.
