Don't get too wrapped around the axle about counting bubbles. If you have the same gravity reading for two days in a row you can bottle with worrying about bottle bombs. Many folks advise that three weeks (for a normal gravity beer) is a good rule of thumb, though, to allow the yeasties time to make your beer delicious- the kit instructions always tell you to go more quickly than necessary.
