What, if any, is the added benefit of using the 6 row as opposed to 2 row during this type of mini mash?

6 row has more diastatic power then normal 2 row does by weight. This is why i originally recommended the 6 row. This difference is not huge, so doing the mini mash should still get near if not full conversion.

Here is the recipe we went with...here is my problem now, has been in primary for 2 weeks and gravity reading today was 1.038. I'm thinking that the fermentation is either stuck or complete. I have heard of people brewing another beer and racking the stuck beer on top of the second yeast cake to restart fermentation. I don't like the idea of that since this has been on its own yeast cake for two weeks. Would that lead to undesirable flavors in the finished beer? I had planned on racking this into secondary with cocao nibs for some more flavor/aroma. Would the beer benefit from an additional vial of yeast? I don't have the California Ale strain that I originally used but I do have a smackpack of American Ale. Need some help here and would love to hear some suggestions.
thanks,
mfs
