I brewed my first batch last Sunday (a hefe) and I moved it the secondary this morning, but there was no kreuzen when I opened up the primary. Is that an issue?

Do you mean that there was no evidence of a krausen at all? Not even the dried out ring around the side of the fermenter?

How's the gravity? Also, i would recomend against putting a hefe in a secondary. They are supposed to be yeasty and drank young.

What was the initial specific gravity last Sunday and the SG when you moved it to the secondary? That all that counts as far as fermentation goes.
