I just used that as an example. My british golden ale used a beer smith water profile for yellow and medium body

I want to emulate Burton on Trent, …

Burtonized water may be authentic but (IMO) Pale Ales are better without it.

Not sure if this applies but…. be careful allowing BeerSmith to calculate your salts automatically. You could get some head scratching results. …at least I did.

…and I recommend not allowing BeerSmith to calculate acid additions. It routinely recommended too much IMO.

I add my salts in the BeerSmith water module as I build a recipe but I don’t let the software calculate additions.

Don’t replicate Burton water. It’s too extreme. If you’re sure you want that sort of IPA water, I recommend using the Pale Ale profile in Bru’n Water.
I agree with Martin.  I tried the BOT profile for my ESB once and the beer was way too harsh.
