check it in a few days. If it's still the same, it can be either racked to secondary (if using) or bottled. I'd wait until 2-3 weeks have passed before bottling, though, to give the beer some time to clear before bottling.

Even if it's done, a little more time to let the yeast clean up is always a good thing. How long has it been in there?

its only been two weeks in the secondary but this batch is suffering from green brewers syndrome and was only in the primary 7 days. it is probably stunted.

exactly... stop messin with it until its ready. Let it sit 3 weeks in primary, then go straight to bottle/kegs. If you take the beer off the cake prematurely you risk stressing out the yeast and getting off flavors.
