Default JAO clearing and bottling

So the JAO 1-gallon that I started a month a a few weeks ago cleared over a week ago. I was wondering if I should wait the 2 months, although the recipe states that when it clears, it's good to go. Would there be any harm in bottling this now that it has cleared? I would hate to have bottles explode on this batch.

That's pretty quick. Is it clear enough to read a newspaper through?

I'd wait....Lees in a bottle just sucks! plus I've had a JOAM accidentally carb in bottle because I didn't wait long enough.
Good, but SCARY as heck!
Seriously. I'm here for BEER

hehe bottles exploding is a frightening experience...esp in your closet as you are waking up..
Primary: Belgian Triple Braggot (6gallons), Lambic Braggot (6gallons), Habanero melomel(6gallons)

Secondary: Peach melomel (5 Gallons)

It seems like a FOX TV Show when a mead maker moves in with an AG brewer....They end up with **** like Lambic Braggot.

Maybe wiat a while to see if all the fruit drops. I had a batch clear in about five weeks from start this summer. At five and half weeks all the fruit hit the bottom and I bottled it. This was in august and nothing has exploded yet, and the one's I have opened had very minimal pffft to them.
