Sometimes by racking, you introduce oxygen into your beer, which will fuel the yeast to eat any fermentables left behind, not a bad thing.. Notty yeast is a beast,lol, just doing it's job, may be a couple points lower in gravity than intended, but in the range of 1.010 you're not going to tell the difference anyway.. if you want to stop it or slow it down.. lower the temp down to about 60-65.. will still clean your beer up.. but no worries bud..
