    I brewed this 2 weeks ago og was 1072 and now im at 1010. This beer tastes smooth right now! Ive read that this beer should sit for around a month min before I even consider botteling. Im at 85% attenuation now. Thoughts? Then im concerned about bottle bombs. 3.3 vol is what most calculators call for on a belgian triple. I suspect my standard bottles wont hanle it. Any suggestions? Thanks guys.

    Carbonate it as you see fit and don't worry about the numbers. If you won't drink it, send it to me!! RDWHAHB

    If it were me I would give it another week to see if there are any changes. That's a pretty big beer to finish that quickly. If the FG stays the same it can be bottled and age in the bottles. If it gets a chance :D.
    Not sure what standard bottles are rated for but should be checked out before using them. From what I've heard I wouldn't go over 3vol.
