FYI, it is called "zest". Just an FYI.

You can get a tool which is much better suited for zesting here. I use it for dressings and hummus, and recently for the Wit.

Thanks! I got a case of the bottles free... They're stubbier than longnecks, so I have to borrow a bench capper when I use them (the fatter neck interferes with the butterfly cappers)

Gonna brew this hopefully this weekend

I'm going on vacation for 2 1/2 weeks on the 17th, would there be any problem with leaving the orange zest in vodka for longer than two weeks?

Let's see if I understand this:
When bottling, put the zest in the bottom of a bucket and rack on top of it. I'll then use my autosiphon to fill the bottles from that bucket.
Would adding the zest into the secondary be better? Give it more time to absorb the orange flavors?
