Hold off until you have enough bottles. Another week is only going to improve your beer and give you time to collect what you need.

I've had it fermenting in the primary for 2 wks then in the secondary for 2wks. The Second Gravity nearly reached the desired gravity by the transfer to secondary.

Rwinzing is right - no reason to hurry. Its a Dubbel, and you could leave it in secondary for another 2 to 4 week and it would get better!

Cheers!

1 gallon = 128 US fluid ounces
1 bottle = 12 US fluid ounces

(4.5 gallons) * (128 ounces per gallon) / ( 12 ounces per bottles)

=

48 bottles

Assuming you have exactly 4.5 gallons, that's 576 oz, which is 48 12oz bottles.

Edit: oops, should read the whole thread before I post.

For what it's worth, I've capped twisties with my wing capper with no problem. I don't do it regularly, but in a pinch it's worked for me.

I agree, with buying 2 6-packs and waiting a week or 2 to bottle. Unless you have another beer ready to go into secondary, or you only have one fermentation vessel and want to make another.

Time makes beer amazing.
