#1 or #2, depending on how much work you want to go through. Either will work...the only thing about #1 is you will affect the overall gravity and there is also a chance of introducing off-flavors to the beer...but that's pretty low.
View it like a regular brew. After 5 days, is it spoiled? Nah. As long as you've kept it sealed up with an airlock, etc., it should be fine to pitch the whole thing.
You could also increase your chances of shorter lag time by just adding a bit of wort, as in option #3. Couldn't hurt.
Oh, and for future reference, when posting a new thread, you have the option to make a poll..which would have been perfect for this thread.
