The yeast I have I washed from a citrus weizen that I just made. I can't remember which one it was though. I figured it was for a wheat beer, might as well use it!
For the honey, we get it local and it comes in glass jars. I was going to pop it in the microwave for a minute or two until it's nice and liquidy before stirring it in, but your idea would work well too!
I wasn't suggesting you try the recipe I used (which was from the White House chefs), just giving it to you as a reference to another honey ale recipe. The White House recipe the chefs shared was an extract recipe, by the way - you are brewing like the White House chefs!
The thing you need to worry about with the honey is to keep it from scorching on the bottom of your boil pot. Another idea is to take the pot off the heat when you add it, stir like crazy, then put it back on the heat (continuing to stir) until it comes back up to a boil.
Have fun with your brew day!
