Oh, I see, you were mentioning that in relation to a possible contamination. I think the contamination is a little less likely since once the beer has alcohol, it's less susceptible to contamination (although not impossible). I've had several batches read good carbonation with about 3-4 weeks, but then continue to carbonate even further after that. They are not infected as the beer has no off flavors.
BTW, I also use my dishwasher's sanitize cycle for sanitizing my bottles. Yes, it might waste alot of water and energy as some have pointed out, but it's really convenient.
