I brewed my first batch of beer over a month ago and it fermented but I got sidetracked and never bottled it. It looks ok, it's in a carboy right now. Is it still good if I bottle it now?

sure is, beer can sit for months and still be fine as long as your airlock still has liquid in it to keep a good sanitary seal.

go, bottle, drink.

I let one sit for 8 weeks and it was fine as a matter of fact one of the clearest beers I ever made without a secondary.

I let all of my brews sit in the primary for a month. No. problems. I have a Belgian that is going on two months. I guess I should think about. bottling it soon.

So. the answer to your question is, go ahead and bottle it when you can.
