The best thing to do is take a gravity reading.

Yes, take a measurement, then prepair to wait - it will go through a LOT more clearing before it's good to bottle, or else you'll end up with a lot of sediment in the bottles.

Measurement is the most important thing though, otherwise you'll never be sure it's safe to bottle.
