You should be just fine with 5 weeks head start, and yes its best enjoyed young.

Make sure you start soaking your orange zest now too as it will also take awhile to extract the volatile oils.

A small amount of vodka isn't going to change the flavor of 5 gallons of beer. However, I personally recommend grain alcohol; mine had no flavor at all other than the orange.

There were many good suggestions in this thread, but I ended up pitching it out. Wasn't worth the hassle, and was just easier to replace it with good stuff.

IMO, yes. I might not use wheat unless it's a wheat beer, otherwise sny mix of base to make 1.040 wort is fine. A starter is too small to affect outcome of the beer, unless it's infected.

Looks like they should move over to San Diego Super Yeast. That stuff is quick fermenting and drops so hard and fast you can practically hear it hit the bottom.
