Doing my American Wheat recipe tonight. The kit is from AHS, and includes their 1% alcohol boost. From their site:
"A 14 oz (392g) bag.
The BrewVint Alcohol Boost is 55% maltose and 45% glucose. This dry sugar adjunct will boost the alcohol content without changing the taste, color, or aroma of the beer. One 14 oz bag will boost the beer 1% ABV.
Usage: Add during boil with rest of sugars and adjuncts."

Any ideas how to go about adding this to beersmith?

Just add 1.1 lbs of corn sugar to your 5 gallon recipe in BeerSmith. It's not exactly correct, but it will approximate the actual results in the software.
