Vampire the masqurade – Thinblood Alchemy Recipes/Formula acquisition

I am currently playing an on and off again VTM campaign. I am playing a thin blood character. I have the thin blood alchemy merit. I was wondering. As the merit works differently than disciplines. IE a formula or recipe can be written down. Could I through the progress of the story trade a boon, or service in exchange for a new formula. It seems to make sense to me as these recipes have a cost, and need hoops to be leapt through for some of these ingredients. but for balance, I think it is probably relegated entirely to spending Exp. I would like other peoples opinions

(Just to clarify. I’m not saying if I have level one TB alchemy. I could trade for, awake the sleeper but possibly get my hands on a recipe/formula for haze. or far reach.)

in case anyone is interested, I am playing a three-man campaign. I am the only thin blood though.
