Recently, I replace a brake line to my front, driver side caliper. After doing so, I accidentally put pwr steering fluid in the brake reservoir. I removed the fluid right away from the reservoir, bled the front caliper and all was fine.
Yesterday, after sitting at a stop light, the brakes would not release and the pedal was very stiff. After turning the car off, pumping the brakes, and then starting the car with the pedal fully depressed, they began to function properly. Is this an air in the line situation, bad fluid situation or worse

It sounds like the PS fluid has damaged the master cylender. When it was in there, did you pump the brakes?

Yes I did. I was going to bleed the system today and see if that helps

Honestly, I would recommend having the system flushed. Also, you mentioned the pedal got stiff. Check to make sure the vacuum hose to the booster is properly attached and wasn't bumped.
