That's just a ton of CO2. You're fine.

Update on the Double oatmeal stout. I opened a chilled bottle and took a hydro reading. It dropped to 1.022 so if the abv calculator is semi accurate, i should be at about 3.68% alc. Tastes really good and has a really nice smell. Now, let's see how long 60 bottles lasts.
