If you are down to 1.002 then I'd say yes it is.

Recheck it and make sure you don't mean 1.020 first.

You could bottle it now...but why would you want too? You went to the trouble to use a secondary, so why not give it at least a week, and two would be better. IMHO, if you're only gonna leave it three days in the secondary, than why even bother?

Bottle bombs away!!!

If I read this right, he added 1/2 cup sugar to the secondary two days ago, and wants to bottle now, with more priming sugar?

I'd wait. For sedimentation/clarity, as well as to make sure the 1/2 cup has been eaten up. You do NOT want to double prime it.

But I may be too late, he may have pulled the pin already.

1 sauerkraut
1 Tequila, from a prickly pear wine experiment that didn't work. I call it "Prickly Heat"

Yeah, I see your point.

That's what he gets for asking us questions without giving us all the info.

Yeah that sounds dubious. If you stick more sugar in a batch that's sitting at 1.002 it ain't sitting at 1.002 anymore. Ergo...
