Unfortunately yeah I've always shot at AWB, and reading now I am reading why that is not a great idea. I know WB can always be corrected in post, but it's kind of hard to know what the right place to land is now.

Take a raw shot (of anything you like) with a daylight white balance. When you open it in the raw converter note the temperature/tint that the raw converter uses. You can then use that same temperature/tint for the raws that you shot with AWB.
