Default Bottle bombs???

Just bottled my batch that got stuck at 1.022. I followed the directions and proper amounts of priming sugar. Am I at risk of bombs? Should I recap to avoid bombs? I don't want to lose an eye!

Def stuck. I can regularly get 1.05x's down to 1.010. It might've been better to gently swirl the fermenter to stir up some yeast. Warm it a little & give it a week. You may have to crack them at about 1 week to relieve some pressure.

I have already bottled them. I don't have room in the fridge for all of them to condition. I keep my house in the low 70's.

One week mark? Im really nervous about this now. One is a 65oz growler from stone brewing company that is about the size of a gallon of milk. That one would probably blow my head off!

What do I do? I don't want to endanger my wife and kid!

First off,growlers aren't designed for co2 pressure during carbonation time. Stricktly for beer transport. Keep them in an enclosed area,or a big tupperware bin with a lid.

Anything special I should do with the growler? Maybe pop the top more often?
