I did not even look at the bottle of Tabasco in question. It says nothing about refrigeration, but I still stuck it in the fridge.
I have been keeping my large bottles of Franks in there anyway.

I was just wondering about losing heat. I guess time will tell?

As I mentioned earlier, my non-refrigerated hot sauces lose heat. Maybe it's the passage of time that causes heat loss, not the storage temperature.

I have a bunch of hot sauces. 13 different kinds at last count but they come and go so I may have more now or less. Most likely more because the homemade are coming on line.

I keep any open bottle in the fridge. None say "Refrigerate After Opening" but I do because I think it keeps them fresher longer.

It's not always about the heat but the taste. I haven't noticed any real loss of heat but on the shelf the taste can change faster then if refrigerated.

I do let them come up to room temp before using them.

Don't know if that makes a difference or not?

No scientific evidence. Just an observation from someone with an asbestos tongue and a cast iron stomach.
