Default Bottle Bombs?

Ok, I think I am about ready to bottle my first batch. It is a Coopers Bavarian Lager. It has been in primary for 15 days, SG reading was just about 1.010 (maybe 1.009).

I don't have the initial gravity, but a week ago it was at 1.014.

Question - Should I have to worry about bottle bombs at all????

Post your recipe here so we can guess/calculate your original gravity.

I'd say it's good to go.

You should be fine. Why the concern about bottle bombs? The only reason that you would need to worry about bottle bombs would be if you used too much priming sugar. 4 oz. is all you need

You should be fine. In my experience bottle bombs are a rare occurrence. As long as fermentation is complete and you don't overprime, you never need to worry about them.

I am brewing the Coopers Bavarian lager. Followed all the instructions with the exception that I used their basic sugar instead of the Brew Enhancer #1 (accidentailly added the wrong bag). I am told it shouldn't make too much of a difference.
