SD Quattro - camera setting for blue sky infrared/IR

I am playing around with infrared on the SD Q. Black and white works fine. But getting a blue sky IR seems very difficult. I did lots of reading, but I don't get to the sort of brownish color out of camera starting point. My images are deep red and low contrast.

Setting custom white balance in camera failed.

Hot mirror is of course removed and I am using 720nm (maybe not the best option to have keep some minimal colors)

I generated a DNG with x3f_tools and tried to push the WB a bit with DNG_Profile_Editor, images are still deep red.

This one below is by far, far the very best one I got so far.

Has somebody some helpful hints for getting a good starting point for blue sky IR images?
