Similarly one may ask, when did Ed and Al burn down their house?

On October 3rd, Edward returned to Resembool, packed up his belongings, burned down the Elric house (claiming that, without it, he and his brother would have no means of turning back from their goal) and left home with Alphonse to find a way to restore him to normal.

How old are the Elric brothers?

He was twelve years old then, and Al was 11 years old. To shorten my answer, Edward Elric was 11 years old and Al Elric was 10 years old when they've done the human transmutation. (Refer to Brotherhood series; his present is 17 years old in Episode 2.)
