Not necessarily.Either way you’ll be following other people’s recipes to start.
One could use the ingredient list of many commercially sold kits and use as is, or as a template to build or adapt your own.
Most better extract kits (and recipes) include steeping grains instead of a can of "specialty LME," that may have lingered on a shelf in some shop for years.
