Welcome to the hobby!  There's a lot of great info on this forum; it's helped my brewing immensely.

Good luck!  Horse's Ass Ale was one of the first recipes I brewed with Mr. Beer and really enjoyed it!  I found that adding 1oz of Brewer's Best Grapefruit Seed was a nice addition as well.

Got up and running Monday. Temps perfect 68, Tuesday night could tell fermenting is going. Last night room temp 67 kegs showing 66 no bubbling from top.  Raised temp this morn keg temp 68 no bubbling and it feel cool to touch. I am using 2 gal conical. Any ideas?

I suggest you spend some time reading.  Neither bubbling nor temperature determine whether fermentation is happening.  

 

Leave it alone, stop checking it, and come back in 18 days.   ;)
