If it is still "really bubbling" it is likely not ready. The only way to know for sure is by checking the gravity several days in a row and have it remain the same. With experience you get to know when it is done by how it behaves and how infrequently bubbles come out of your airlock. It would also help to know what type of beer it is and the starting gravity - in general higher OG brews take longer to ferment, lagers also take longer then ales...

If you can still see bubbles, or airlock action dont bottle.

I go with the 1-2-3 system. I haven't had any bottle bombs yet.
