Default grain question

On Sunday i got the grain i needed for a pale recipe i found. i crushed them while at the homebrew store, got home and realized duh, i dont have a 2nd air lock for my primary (secondary is full at the moment). so i just kept them in a zip lock bag, put in the frig with the hops and yeast. i'm going to be brewing either tonight, tomorrow or sunday (depending), are the grains still ok, or should i stop and get some fresher grain before brewing?

It will be fine ...pref a cool dry place but the fridge will work for a couple of days (especially if it's just steeping grains) with out an issue.

as long as you keep em stored airtight and not at crazy temperatures crushed grains will keep for several weeks without worry, even grains you need to mash.
