Default Help I think I ruined my batch of red ale

First off I'd like to say hello this is my first post and my first batch brewing I brewed the true brew red ale kit and I made a big mistake after adding my extract I boild the wort for an hour and not a half hour like the directions say I misread I so I added the first half of hops at the start and the last half during the last 3 minutes .I seemed to have done everything else correct but it has now bed almost 24hours and I have not noticed any action in the fermentator yet at lease since I left for work in the morning should I be worried?

The boil time is not a problem. Don't worry about fermentation starting, it can take up to 36 hours depending on yeast strain, temperature, etc.

Your beer will be slightly more bitter than it would have otherwise been, but should still be quite drinkable.

Odds are that the only thing that is changed is that the beer is darker due to the time the extract boiled.

You may have just made a Red IPA. If you were sanitary with the rest of your procedures following the boil, everything will be fine.

You shouldn't worry at all as long as you cooled the wort to pitching temps before adding your yeast you will be fine. What exactly do you consider signs of fermentation?
