I wouldn't worry. Just add the priming sugar to the thing and bottle
it. My first batch ever (an English bitter) fermented for only 20 hours
and then stopped. I just assumed it was OK, bottled it with corn sugar,
and got the carbonation without any problem. The whole thing turned out
pretty good...
