Custom White Balance is what I use.

Yes. Use Custom WB.... (see your manual)

Then, for the sake of possibly increased convenience for the future, shoot again using your "flash" preset.. or all of your flash presets in turn, if you have more than one.

Then compare all the shot frames in your normal viewing software, preferably displayed on a calibrated monitor.

On critical examination it may be that one of your presets is so close to the Custom WB result it is not worth bothering with Custom WB on every studio flash shooting occasion.
