The present model being used in BeerSmith does not have the data needed to properly model the effect of this additive on the water chemistry or mash pH.  You can add it as a 'misc' item and label it as a 'water agent' but the effect of adding it will not be predicted by the program and it would need to be added manually.

most notable info I can find is this:

35ml of AMS per hl of this water reduces the alkalinity by 64 mg/litre (ppm) and increases chloride levels by 22.5 mg/litre (ppm) and sulphate levels by 31 mg/litre (ppm).

I have no experience using this kind of ingredient, but could one just make a water profile for it such as this, and base it off that 35ml. every "gallon" would be 35ml.
