Woah there your post is a little hard to understand but I'll attempt to answer your questions. Your Mr Beer brew is always going to have a little yeasty flavor but if you want to keep it from having a strong yeast flavor then you need to leave it in the fermenter for 10 or 11 days. A good rule of thumb is that once the foam on the top of the brew goes down then wait 5 or 6 more days to bottle. This lets all the yeast settle to the bottom. Also when you move the fermenter to bottle the beer try not to disturb the yeast on the bottom.
As for your beer not having bubbles in it...did it taste flat? If it actually tasted flat then it hadn't carbonated yet. You should leave in the bottle for 10 days after bottling. Also, the colder you make the beer before serving the less it will foam when you pour it.
I am currently working on a website that explains how to get the best results from Mr. Beer but I don't know when I'll be finished as I'm still learning myself and writting it as I go.
