With that amount of airlock activity you could wind up over-carbing it or just making bottle bombs. Every week that goes by will help.
I haven't tasted yours but I under-carbed mine compared to how I carbonate beer and it tasted great. You could use 1/2 to 1/3 or the usual bottling sugar and life would be great.
Or if you keg just don't even worry about it.
