I brewed a batch of beer on June 7. Gravity was still too high after 2 weeks, so I let it ride. Here it is now August 9, and I haven't checked it since. Has it been on the yeast cake too long, or will it probably be ok to bottle?

Probably. My advice? Take lid off carefully with sanitized hands and give it a sniff, don't get too close or you'll get CO2 burn in your nose! If it smells decent and not horrid, take a sanitized object and pull a sample, then (here's the kicker...) TASTE IT!

You'll know if it's ok or not.
