I can only give you general guidelines, 'cause I'm not there with you, and I can't know exactly what I'd do if I was. A lot of times in this game, the only way to learn is to do, and see what happens. Then make a note of it, and do it all again, but better.
Liquid KB works just fine for me thru most of flowering, as shown on the schedule. I only modify it if I have a plant that takes longer or shorter than the GH schedule (I think their schedule is for a plant that's done in 9 weeks. Maybe 10, I don't remember.)
If I was using GH 3 Part, like Rez, I'd give his recipe a try, 'cause that guy has surely grown a few plants before and ought to have a pretty good idea what he's about. He's taken the GH schedule and modified it to suit his needs, presumably over a long time during which he dialed it in, bit by bit. I like how his recipe is way stripped down and gives em what they need, no more, no less.
I'll tell you what I've been told a couple of times, and trust me, no offense intended: you might be over thinking this, dude. Just follow the directions (either GH's or Rez's or whoever's,) and modify as needed on your next round. What good is a mod if you don't know how it behaves stock, if I can use an automotive analogy?
