Default Help with gypsum.

I will be brewing a hop up American Wheat Ale, close to a Gumballhead. I only use RO water , I have brewed this beer in the past and although its great I still feel like the hop flavor could be a little sharper. I use Amarillo and citra in a 10.5 gal batch. My question is how much gypsum should I add to get some more sharpness on the hop flavors

The short simple number is 1-2 tsp per 5 gallons. Water chemistry is complicated but if you don't want to get into that, 2-4 tsp for your batch is a place to start.
