I am now making my own BBQ Sauce, which has mustard, vinegar, sugar, etc in it. If I keep this in a container in the fridge, how long can I safely keep it for?

We've had sauce refrigerated for over six months with no problems, though I do start to think I'm tasting a vinegar taste longer than that. Not strong enough to complain, but I discard at that point and start from scratch.

Six months is about the length of time I'll hold sauce before I make more.
