So, I bought some yeast nutrient, should I add 1 tsp per gallon or .5 for this recipe?

Thanks

Do what the bottle says to add per gallon.

EDIT

If it's already started fermenting (might already be too late to add but..) dissolve the the nutrient in water before adding it. Otherwise it's going to create a lot of nucleation points and the CO2 will cause the apfelwein to give you a money shot right to the face and it may hit the ceiling if it's in a narrow necked carboy.

Without any backsweetening or aging, it'll happily go below 1.000....YMMV, but I find it both slightly tart and sweetish, with a distinct hint of apple...ans SWMBO agrees. Backsweetenng with an unfermentable, such as lactose or splenda, can ensure a sweeter finish with more body.

What does aging have to do with the FG? Does it un-ferment?

aging it allows some of the unwanted flavors to fade so the apple flavor can be noticed

Does the unwanted flavor fading affect the gravity?

No it shouldn't, unless you didn't let it dry out all the way.
