After two weeks, it should be ready to bottle.
Thanks for the advice. I went ahead and bottled it today, and boy was it clear! I was expecting it to be cloudy since I thought it still would have some suspended yeast in it. It ended up looking ruby red like an Irish Red. Tasted good too. It was pretty much what I was hoping for except I will add more aroma hops at the very end of the boil next time.
I hope it carbonates since it was so clear...makes me wonder if the yeast can do the job.
