I am new to brewing on my first brew an American pale ale. I brewed on 1-15 and raked to secondary a week later on the 22nd of Jan. When should I bottle it. I took a sg reading the last 2 days and they were both 1.014 and the og was 1.046. also anyone from the Toledo Ohio area? would like to find a good homebrew store in the area.

i'd say you are probably ok to bottle. seems like a reasonable gravity change, but without a recipe, it's hard to say. You could leave it in the secondary for another week with no problems if you want, but I get the impression that you are eager to get the show on the road (everybody is for their first batch.)

Pale ales are pretty easy to make and can be ready to drink in as little as 2 weeks from the brew day.

If there are no bubbles in the airlock, and the gravity is staying constant...

go for it.
