I would put the peel in vodka and let it soak overnight. Then dump the peels and vodka right into primary. No need to rack this to secondary IMO. You can keep it in there for as long as you want. 3 to 7 days should be good.

When you peel them make sure the peel doesn't have the white pith.

I put them in primary/secondary all the time without issue, no vodka, no sanitizer. You can even take the vodka tincture one step further and soak lots of peel for a few weeks and then just add the vodka.

I'm adding zest to to my saison this week at flameout then a week before bottling
