I hope I'm reading this wrong and you didn't boil the honey malt. You'll extract the hars astringent flavors from the husks that way.
As for the "brew enhancer" it's just some corn sugar (dextrose) to bump the ABV (but thins the body) and maltodextrin to enhance the body (in an attempt to counteract the effects of the dextrose.) You can totally just boil that stuff in a bit of water, cool it in an ice bath and add it to the primary-if you so desire. The beer will be just fine without it too. It's your call.
