I've looked through the Q&As and noticed some folks mentioning a recipe kit coming with this beginner kit, and saw that some of the other beginner kits on the site had that option available, too. But that doesn't seem to be the case here. Are these kits still available for free with this particular startup, or should I purchase one separately?
A: The free recipe is available on the beginner kit upgrades but no longer offered on the basic beginner kit
