Slow down there!!! I know it's exciting but your beer might not be done! Check your hydrometer and then check it again in 3 days. If it's stable, then it's safe to bottle.

And speaking of slowing down, I need to read the entire post before responding. Jeez.

Never trust the airlock to tell you when you're beer is done fermenting! Use a hydrometer over 2-3 days of getting the same measurement to tell you when it's reached FG. Then bottle. Otherwise,you could get bottle bombs.
***,ah,ya got me too. And boy,do some of you type fast! There were no replies when I started typing...
