I got an extract kit a few months back and wasn't ready to use it. It is safale dry yeast (dont remember which) I put the yeast in the fridge. Is this ok to do ? Will my beer turn out ok ? I'm making a milk stout eventually.

Yep, good idea to keep it refrigerated if you're not going to use it for a while.

Fridge is the recommended storage location.
