I shook the carboy alittle right after and then again about 1/2 hour later. Will this be enough to distribute the yeast? And was this the correct process?
Yes, that's fine, as long as the wort was under 80 degrees. 70 is better, but under 80 is ok.
As far as the original question- apfelwein doesn't usually get a krausen like beer does. It was probably a little shocked by the temperature change, and is getting into reproduction mode. Give it at least another day, and by then the party should be started in your fermenter.
