Hopefully you don't get any fusel (gasoline) flavors from pitching the yeast that warm.

I do like to use vodka in the 3 piece airlock - just buy a 750 of the cheapest crap you can find and use it up over the course of the years. Better than wasting a shot of Goose :P

If you monkey around with the airlock or vessel too much, the contents of the airlock can dribble down into the beer. Can bacteria grow in the water in 3 weeks? I don't know. The alcohol in the beer would probably kill anything that got in it. I'd rather play it safe with a 8 dollar bottle of Popov.
