Ya Gypsum is just for adjusting your waters chemical compound. I never use the stuff so i can only comment on what science has proven, as there are alot of wives tales about what gypsum does to a beer. The kent goldings i would shoot for 10-15min boil most likely, no real hop aroma in smithwicks. If you feel like using gypsum, i would toss it in around the sametime as the goldings.
