Default are these going to blow up?

I made the Austin homebrew Orange Creamsicle Ale (extract). I added extra orange peel, and did a boil of about 4 gallons.
and I just looked at the site and I can't even find it on there now.
Anyway, it stopped at 1.020.( I read that this can happen with extract. also I have made like 12 batches, all extract and never had this happen)
I bottled it and now want to know if these are gonna blow?

I used Cream Ale yeast fermenting at 67 degrees, temp controlled.
I did a yeast starter made on a stir plate.

I got them sitting in a plastic tub for now, just wondering if there is a chance of these going boom, and if so, how long before that happens.

Thanks.

what was the O.G.? how long did you leave it in primary? and how much priming sugar did you use?

A FG of 1.020 is kind of high for a cream ale. Did your starter propagate sufficient yeast cells, based on the yeast production date, for the 1.062 OG?

I assume so. There were visible signs of fermentation after 6 hours. And fermentation was very intense.

Well, it could have just been done at 1.020. I would say that keeping them in a tub is fine. Was the OG steady for days? Also, how much volume did you bottle? Boiling about 4 gallons makes me wonder what the volumes were. 4 oz may be a lot.

These did not blow up and in fact taste fantastic.
also, not overly carbonated. good stuff.
