I kept my newly purchased vanilla extract in chiller box. Just realised extract should not be refrigerated. Will the extract change if I keep it in a cool dry place now due to temperature condensation?

It doesn't hurt it to refrigerate it. It can make it cloudy. It also won't hurt it to take it out of the refrigerator. I keep mine in the hall pantry where it is cool and dark.

Don't really know the answer but I would just move it into the pantry after letting it come to room temperature. Others will likely chime in!

I don't think it will hurt it, but I'd start keeping it in a cool pantry or cupboard shelf. Matt Nielsen is on Facebook. You can ask him yourself, if you'd like.
