Default Brown Ale Water Profile?

Hey guys. I was wondering if anyone has a tried and true water profile for a brown ale. I'm going to start building my water from RO water since I can't use the softened water. I was playing with a calculator earlier and settled on adding I think .5 tsp of baking soda, 1 tsp calcium chloride, .5 tsp gypsum, .25 tsp Epsom salts. tIIs should give me calcium=67, mag=5, sulfates=74, chloride=79, sodium=30, total alkalinity=62.

My recipe is 5.5 gallons

10lbs 2 row
.75lbs crystal 60
.5lbs victory
.5lbs carapils
6oz American chocolate malt

Mash in with a ratio of 1.5 at 154 for an hour

I want to hit around 5.3 to 5.4 PH. Do my carbonates seem high enough for that? Like I said if anyone has a great water profile for something like this I'd be open to trying it.
