LME doesn't store particularly well. It will darken over time and produce extract twang. If you buy LME in bulk, make sure you use it all in several months' time. It is very important to keep it refrigerated.
I like the flavor of LME better, but if I were going to buy extract in bulk I'd get DME. It will last much longer as long as you keep it in a dry place.
