Are you sure you wrote them correctly?
It looks like they are different for
 b ~k l ~t

I agree that something isn't right. My guess is that one of the ~b terms should be b in the first expression otherwise ~b would consume ~b.~t

Try fully expanding it like you would in regular algebra with + and . like addition and multiplication.
Then cancel out any terms with b.~b etc. See if it looks closer.

The 2nd expression has ~b in all four terms, so if b=T, then 2nd expression is F.
But, for b=T, the 1st expression can be T for some values of k, t, and l; so the two expressions are not the same.
