It's kept in clear containers!? My LHBS has it in those cool 80# plastic containers and pushes it out with CO2 instead of gravity. I only use their Alexander's pale LME and I can make some pretty light beers. I do late additions to so that might help.

Tried LME once. Beer turned out ok but havent used it since. I've had nice luck using DME with the late exctract method.

It seems like there are big differences between LME stored and sold in bulk versus the individual cans (or, in the case of Breiss, heavy sealed plastic containers).
