I just started my first home brew and might have screwed it up. I used a brew kit that had times for "cooking" and everything went really well. We put the final product into a plastic bucket and stored it in in the pantry. The next morning I checked it and decided i needed to move it for fear of divorce due to the smell. I went to check it the next day and there wasn't a smell or bubbles coming from the bucket. So...I opened the lid and peaked in. Did I kill my beer?
Yep, I'm afraid it's dead. You'll need to let it sit for 3 more weeks, then prime & bottle it and send it to me for proper disposal. Don't worry, I'll get it taken care of real good! PM me for the address.

What is the temp where you moved the beer or better yet what is the temp of the beer. It's not likely that you killed it but if you moved the beer to a place that is too cold you may have caused the fermentation to slow down a bit.
