Absolutely! Just make sure you adjust the hops to account for your boil size if you make any changes to that. You shouldn't need to adjust the grain bill on the specialty grains at all though.

You are right about the honey, it takes a long long time to ferment. Just leave it be for at least another week before messing with it again. Warming it a bit won't hurt as long as it's not a huge...
