Default Is this just asking for trouble?

I am wanting to bottle my Apfelwein tonight, I really need the carboy. It has been going for 8 weeks. Has not changed gravity in 2 weeks, but is still bubbling. Also still has positive pressure on the airlock. I don't want to have any bottle bombs. What are your thought, will I have problems if I try and bottle tonight, BTW I am going to carb them.

Thanks for any help.

In my experience If the Gravity has not changed that means it has stablized What was the OG when you started, and what is the Final Gravity right now? I would assume right now if the FG has not changed then your Apfelwein will be done

Ok, thats what I was thinking, just did not know because of the gas bubbles if that would cause extra pressure.
