Default JAO clearing and bottling

So the JAO 1-gallon that I started a month a a few weeks ago cleared over a week ago. I was wondering if I should wait the 2 months, although the recipe states that when it clears, it's good to go. Would there be any harm in bottling this now that it has cleared? I would hate to have bottles explode on this batch.

That's pretty quick. Is it clear enough to read a newspaper through?

I'd wait....Lees in a bottle just sucks! plus I've had a JOAM accidentally carb in bottle because I didn't wait long enough.
Good, but SCARY as heck!

Maybe wiat a while to see if all the fruit drops. I had a batch clear in about five weeks from start this summer. At five and half weeks all the fruit hit the bottom and I bottled it. This was in august and nothing has exploded yet, and the one's I have opened had very minimal pffft to them.
