Not at all,  just differences of opinions so you can make an informed decision.

 

It's all good~

OK, since it was mentioned in another thread..........

 

The OP was asking about a specific brand/sauce....so...

 

I agree that Dave's Ghost sauce is probably OK to leave unrefr'd....  but imho, do not assume other hot sauces are safe to be left unrefrigerated.

Already have 3 kegs. That's why I need to know if they should be refrigerated. LMAO

Now I want the HVR Fountain!

Sauce just came by mail. Tried it on meatballs: the heat was there, but didnt last for long. So I tried again and again. Probably the same heat level as Melindas Ghost sauce, yet Melindas tastes like fresh peppers, and Daves has cooked flavor. Left the sauce in the pantry :-)

Well, I have to take my words back. I tried Melindas and Daves side by side, 3 drops of each, on crackers. Daves Ghost is MUCH hotter! %)

Dave's contains extract and Melindas doesn't. TBH, making a sauce with a superhot pepper and then adding extract to it is a concept I've never understood but I guess it works for them.

PS, Daves has vegetable oil in it, maybe that's why it says to refrigerate?

Ah well...just 7 bucks. I won't f*ck up like that again. Maybe I'll pour some of it on my trash bags to keep animals out of it.

Agreed for liability's sake. I've generally kept all condiments except mayonnaise/tartar sauce in the pantry, even after being opened. Ketchup, mustard, hot sauces, soy/tamari/teriyaki.... all say to refrigerate after opening. I've never had an issue.

`
I have to agree with general consensus that if pH in the low 4's bacterial growth extremely rare so it is generally safe to not refrigerate. But as a sidebar, what about flavor, taste or heat? A long time ago a hot sauce connoisseur I knew claimed that not refrigerating hot sauce caused it to deteriorate, especially the flavor. Being honest, I have poor taste and smell senses and was wondering if anyone here can chime in? I'm not talking about that bottle you found at the back of the spice rack that had a best if used by date of a few years ago but maybe you used the last of a bottle that had been opened for awhile (Non-Refrigerated of course.), opened a fresh one and thought, "Hum, that's odd."?

Just wonderin'.......
