My last beer took that long with 2 packs of #5. It seems to have a very nice complex flavor from under-pitching though.

I would throw the beer out Along with all beer related stuff as its clear that this yeast ruined everything. In fact have your neighbors throw any beer out too just in case.

Don't sweat anything. One batch I made a couple of months ago showed nothing yet 5 days later, the FG was dead on. Let the yeast do the work and don't worry about it.

The surface being covered with foam IS activity, your airlock bubbling is not an indicator of fermentation, it merely vents excess CO2.
