Elderberry tincture sedement

My elderberry tincture has a lot of sediment on the bottom. There's a couple inches on the bottom of a quart mason jar. Should I just shake it up before using it or should I let it settle and syphon the clearer part off the top before I rebottle it?

Thanks.
I already strained it with a metal coffee filter. I'll have to buy some paper ones.

a couple thicknesses of some tightly woven cloth might do the trick, too. wetting it down first (I use alcohol) reduces the amount you lose to soaking into your filter. true for cloth or paper filters.

I restrained it through my metal coffee filter and it caught very little. Then I used the paper filter and it barely moved. After deciding it might evaporate faster than it would drip through I just let it settle and syphoned the clear part off the top.


 
How do they get the deer to cross at the signs? Or to read this tiny ad?
