Hello
I mixed up some esv 2 part concentrated alk to the proper ratios as I always do.
This time the alk mixed clear but after 3 days the solution is separated
Any idea why this would happen?

Is there a precipitate on the bottom? What exactly happened? If there's some precipitate, you could try heating the solution to redissolve it, but you might be seeing some sort of contaminant.

I heated to 100 today and aerated for several hrs it was milky looking.
then stopped aerating and now its 1/2 clear and 1/2 white milky looking

My guess is that you're seeing a bit of some sort of contaminant. I probably wouldn't worry much. You could try heating it a bit hotter and stirring well. Aeration won't help in this case.
