Default Is there krausen with cider? First time cider

I put the yeast in my cider last Tuesday night. The next morning I saw the beginning of fermentation, little bubbles and what not. It's def fermenting. It's Saturday now and still just bubbles. The cider is def fermenting though. I guess I have 2 questions.

Does cider usually have krausen?
How long does cider take to ferment out?

1 gallon of cider
1/2 pack of lavin-47
1/2 teaspoon yeast nutrients and yeast energizer


Ægir was a god who would host a party where all the gods would drink the beer he brewed for them. He made this in a giant kettle that Thor had brought. The cups in Ægir's hall were always full, magically refilling themselves when emptied.
