What is everyone's experience with this im bottling in soft drink bottles and after 4 weeks in the bottles they have a stack of loose sediment on the bottom and the GB is crystal clear. Does one simply shake and enjoy the gingery goodness or carefully pour?

That's pretty normal mate. Yeast and other stuff will drop out over time, and more so when cold. Pour off carefully.

As mikec says the sediment should harden when cold. Trynstanding some upright in the fridge undisturbed for at least two days. If drinking the whole bottle then carefully decant into a jug and stop the pur just short of thre cloudy stuff. You should get most of it out.

If you used fresh ginger in the recipe then I'd at least give one a shake to see if it gives that "ginger bite".

Traditional option is to roll the bottle gently on its side and drink cloudy with all that goodness.
