I looked up the malt analysis for the lot I had. My bag is gone, so I'll be curious to see what happens when I switch over to the Briess two row that I have.

Is my barley crusher starting to slip or could this possibly be due to the change from US 2-row from my LHBS (breiss?) to this canadian malt?
If it's the Pale Ale Malt, it has a lower diastatic power, so you're going to get a lower efficiency compared to regular 2-row.

That's different than Pale Ale Malt. I'm assuming the OP has pale ale malt, not 2-row aka pale malt.

I've never had issues with Canada malting...might it be a tad smaller kernel of grain and require a tighter crush. Look at the crushed grain to confirm a thorough crush

Worth a second look at the B/C mill, might need an adjustment.

Canada malting is good stuff IME...

The pale malt should have plenty of diastatic presence to convert itself and more!
