So I have noticed in about 2 weeks my tincture has a separation e Coffee color at the top and a tannish color on the bottom I shake it once a week. So my question is I am new at this do you guys separate for bottle it all together when it's ready. Not exactly sure on the correct terminology for this thank you

Depends on what you want to do with it. Some guys will pour off the liquid and use that in lure formula, then do a second tincture using the same castor.

After 8-12 months, it's nearly black, thus stronger, thus goes further.
I suck it out using a baster, or pour off, thru a few layers of cheesecloth.
I leave the bottom to help the next batch brew.
