Same here, plus wheat. 2-row's a fairly blank canvas wherever you get it, but I've had excellent efficiency and attenuation. Cheap Canadian labor notwithstanding, Canada produces twice as much barley as the US, so that may help explain the price gap. I think much of the US crop is grown by or pre-contracted to Anheuser-Busch as well.
