I can't think of anyway to confirm other than testing one of the untested brother's family (preferably the brother himself). Obviously the ultimate answer would be from testing your father as you know. If you are not ready for the answer you can test something other than his autosomal such as Y-DNA or something here at FTDNA. That way his DNA is on file when you are ready to test. Or you can test using Family Finder and shut off the matches in the settings so his results are private. Since your potential half-sibling has transferred to FTDNA once your father's Family Finder results are in you can turn on his matches briefly just to see then turn them off to private again (remember to click the save button at the bottom of settings page anytime you make changes). This way only you would know the answer and you can tell who you wish or keep it to yourself until the time is right for you.
