Default lost track of time I've been holding on to grains and malt extract

Due to poor time management and lack of knowledge, I'm got a suspicion some of my stuff may be bad. What is the maximum amount of time you guys have gone with storing extract and grains without a problem? I've had the grains in the fridge for the past 4-5 weeks, none have been opened, the liquid malt extract came in a double sealed bag as part of a recipe kit I've had for close to three weeks and didn't think to put it in the fridge before I went on vacation.

I can't imagine you will have any trouble with it. That stuff sits at room temp at the LHBS for months and a time in some cases and its fine.

A few weeks! I was expecting you to say years. You are fine.
