3 weeks should do the trick, but try and avoid doing things based on a set schedule. Rather, use sound reasons to determine things like when to bottle. For example, when activity stops check the gravity. If it's at expected terminal gravity, confirm the reading a few days later. If it's the EXACT same, age it a few more days or "cold crash" if you have the fridge space. If the reading is lower, even .001, WAIT! Most normal strength ales will be done in 3 weeks but you never know, every fermentation has its own unique set of variables. This way you're learning the yeast's behavior, not taking a shot in the dark...
