Yeah, the primary purpose of racking is to separate the meady goodness from sediment and settled yeast. Is there sediment at the bottom of your jars? If not, then all you will accomplish is introducing more oxygen to your mead and possibly getting some off flavors.

Yes it's been racked off the lees. I racked it 3 or 4 times, then put it in pint jars with the air tight lids. I just wanted to make sure it will be good in January when I am going to break them all open and share my first batch with everyone that is worth me Sharing with...
