I live in hot & humid climate and don't have a cool dark place to let this ferment. Can I ferment this in the fridge? Also, how long will this sauce keep? I presume it must be refrigerated?

I made this exactly as posted, is wonderful In texture and flavor.. The fermentation formed a white scum, removed it and continued.. it took about 45 minutes to render-down to a firm consistency...
