Healp please

AS stated above, my gravity reading has been 1.030 for 1 month my kit calls for 1.020 for FG.

Can I bottle it without bottle bombs?

What yeast? If you used something like S-33 or T-58, I would not be surprised it finished high.

How does it taste. 1.030 is very sweet and would not work for me, I'd also be concerned about re-fermentation in the bottle. Do you have any other beers going, that you could rack this onto the cake to try and get it down further?

Have you tried the usual remedies? Warming up the fermentor, rousing yeast, racking onto a large yeast cake? You can also try adding amalase enzyme.

To be clear, you have taken multiple readings right? Does the yeast cake on the bottom look rather thin? Or normal? Just trying to make sure the measurements are being taken correctly.

Sorry fellas I did a few tricks, I did not pitch yeast.

I went ahead and bottled it. Guess ill find out how it is.

Sorry I dont remember the yeast I used whatever came in the kit. From now on imma do those big beers a bit different.
