Default Cracked Grain

How long will cracked grain last? I've got in a plastic bag, sealed up and in my fermentation closet that keeps at about 65 degrees. I got sick over the weekend and didn't brew today like I wanted to. I would like to brew two weeks from today if the grain will keep, if not I'll squeeze it in before work tomorrow. Thanks!

It should be fine for a couple weeks....

I've used crushed grains that sat way longer than I'd like to admit and the beer turned out great.

Go to your local grocery store and look at the oatmeal sitting on the shelf in a cardboard tube at room temperature for who knows how long and then quit worrying about a couple weeks for your crushed grain.
