Default Should be 1.010, but is 1.012, Can I bottle?

AHB's Blue Moon clone says it should be aprox 1.010 fg. I measured it at 1.012 today. It was in primary for one week, secondary for 2.5 weeks, now I really want to bottle today, so that I can move my 90min over to secondary.

Is a .002 difference aprox enough? Or, should I wait until tomorrow or Monday to check it again? I just have so much more time today.

As long as your airlock isn't bubbling much, bottle away!

Having been in the primary and secondary for a combined 3.5 weeks I would say you are good to bottle. If you are really worried, wait a day or two and take another reading. If its the same, then bottle.

But 3.5 weeks? Pretty sure its done....just bottle it.

That's warm enough to not slow down the ferment.
All I can say is as tough as it is I'd not bottle just yet.

But then again I have kegs.

Well, I guess I'll just hold off for a couple more days.

Kegs..??? I've got a birthday coming up at the end of this month. Maybe I can convince SWMBO to get me a kegging system for my bday. Wow, that would be soooooo much easier. And, then I could drive her crazy searching for a used fridge to keep it in.

EDIT: wait a minute, it's bubbling every 33 seconds in the SECONDARY????
