You only have 2 of the malts (1.5 lbs carapils and vienna) that could be mashed
to extract sugars from. The rest can be in the mash but do not have any enzomatic action to contribute very much sugars and therefore only contribute flavor. Yes you could minimash and get some sugar from it if you want to do it. It should be a very tasty brew no matter which way you handle it. I personally prefer all grain as you have all the sugars fresh flavors from all the mashed grains. You really do not need to transfer to a secondary fermenter for ales, just leave it in the primary 14 days and you can bottle.
