i was brewing some red ale last night and one of my grain bags broke during the steeping process. i got most of the loose grain out of the wort but didn't get it all. will this mishap lead to a bad tasting beer?

Shouldn't be a big issue, only a problem if you boiled a bunch of grains but a couple floating around isn't going to be noticeable.
Ah the lowly yeast, how many deals have been made over the results of their fine work?

Keep a pack of paint strainer bags on hand. At steeping temps you could use a fermentation bucket and strainer to strain it. Then boil as normal.
