Default Fermentation Of Amber Ale

My Friend and I are about 2 weeks into fermentation of an amber ale. When do you think we should put it into bottles for maximum taste?

When the SG is unchanging over several days, and the beer is clearing nicely. Once it's clear, that's a great time to bottle.

For my Haus Amber, I ferment for two weeks at about 62*F, cold crash for about four days, then keg.

That is fermenting with US-05 yeast.

YMMV

I racked my amber ale to a secondary on day 7 and then bottled on day 14. Mine didn't require any dry hopping or anything, so I didn't see a need to wait another week.
