There is a brownish residue at the bottom of jar after making a batch. Okay or not?

Yes, its ok if your colloidal silver is not cloudy and is yellow colored.  You should clean your jar after every batch though.
Colloidal Silver is only a bargain if you make it yourself.

The colloidal silver was pale yellow. However it was initially cloudy, but after it say over night it was clear. What does this mean?

I was wondering the same thing! How much oxide residue that collects on the bottom of the jar is the norm? Dies it become higher amounts for higher ppm batches?

There should be none if using a magnetic stirrer.  There will be some visible if you don't.

It is, of itself, not harmful but not effective at being an antibacterial. I allow my batches to settle out and if any appears, decant it off. As others have said, vigorous stirring and/or production with heat normally eliminates it.

If producing "cold" then I always allow the batch to rest for a day or so, to see if any fallout of silver oxide occurs. If I am not producing for others, I just drinki it. Never had any issues, the amount is too small.

So if it is cloudy immediately after making but clear after sitting for awhile, what does that mean? Also,what does it mean to produce "cold?"

It means that the particles that were making it cloudy either settled out or dissolved.
Cold means room temperature.
