OK So this is important info. Did you have three straight days of steady FG readings??
What yeast did you use? I ask because the French Saison yeast can murder some sugars. I had a brew go from 1.080 or so down to under 1!!! You could have some serious issues if those things aren't done yet.
To give you an idea. We add about 5oz of sugar to a beer to carb. Thats around 2.5 vol of CO2. With a 1.009 gravity, assuming it would have finished even at 1.004, you are talking about the equivalent of bottling with an additional 11oz of sugar. That comes out to about 7 vols all told. Beer bottles can hold about 4.. so
