I've never noticed any difference in efficiency/extract with MO vs other pale malts. Just a guess, but where are you getting your malt? Perhaps the LHBS doesn't turn it over enough and the malt is getting old?
I can't be arsed to keep up this list of what's in the fermenters, but hey, check out the cool brewery I'm opening up!
