Residue where? In the fermenter? Was it caked at the bottom or floating around? How long did you leave the beer in primary? Did you use a secondary?
These questions are really just to pin down exactly what you are seeing, but regardless what your answers are, your beer is probably fine.

It should settle out. Just remember to pour gently and leave the last 1/4 to 1/2 inch in the bottle.

If you are bottle conditioning, you'll get some crud anyway even if the beer was crystal clear to begin with.

Prost!

That residue is normal. It's trub and yeast particulates. It's good for you too, although it gives some people the awesome beer farts. This may or may not be a bad thing.
