Default Flemish Red: aged 19 months, still at 1.010. Safe to bottle?

Sampled it on Christmas and it tastes amazing, bracingly sour...in a good way. Looks like the gravity hasn't moved since 2/2013. I've been told not to bottle at 1.010 or higher, but I think it's done. I'm leaning towards bottling it this weekend. What do you all think?

It sounds like its stable and safe. I'd bottle and if you want, send me a bottle and I'll test it. I'm pretty nice like that.

If you're really concerned with it I would prime at the lower end of the carbonation scale for the style. Then if it's a little higher it's not that big of a thing. Just insurance.

Having been stable for 10 months, you don't have to worry about bottling at 1.010.

Thanks everyone. I figured it was safe, but it never hurts to ask.

Update: Bottled this on Saturday, 1/4. 5.9 oz of priming sugar and about 2 grams of Montrachet. Smelled and tasted fantastic. Hopefully it tastes good in about 8 weeks, when I crack the first one.

Almost 6 oz of priming sugar? Tell me this is a 5 gallon batch!
