What kind of beer is it? – hookedonwinter Apr 12 '10 at 15:03

Its possible that you haven't given the beer enough time to settle out. A hydrometer reading of 1.010 may indicate that fermentation is done. But there is likely still plenty of stuff still settling out. I'd recommend moving the fermentor to someplace cooler than fermentation temps, as this will help promote the settling of stuff. If you have a secondary fermentor you can rack to that, but I don't really think its necessary.

I let all my beers sit in primary for 10-14 days.
