This is not Racer 5, but it is pretty close. In any event, this is a great tasting beer. I have made this 3 times now, making modifications the 2nd and 3rd times. I think the base recipe is the best and closest to BR Racer 5. Maybe a bit more dry hops is needed to get the floral nose up a tad bit more. For my next batch of this (it's becoming my go to recipe) I'm going to do a bit of experimenting with going with a First Wort hop addition and also add to the mash a bit of Cascade hops to smooth the hops a bit more. If you go with the kit, you are going to be happy.
