Default New to kegging cider - need help

There seems to be different info on this in doing a search. So I'm going to ask what is the latest up to date info on this? I've got 15 gallons of hard cider that I want to back sweeten with apple concentrate and keg. What are the CORRECT ratios of:

Campden Tabs
Potassium Sorbate
Apple Concentrate to add?

The batches that I have are all over 6 months old.

Thanks

K-meta (campden) and K-sorbate should have instructions on the packet. It's usually something like one tab for every gallon and half a teaspoon of sorbate for every gallon, I'm not sure though because I almost never use it. The concentrate would be to taste, so keep adding till it's where you like it.

Thanks for the reply Oldmate. Do most people carb at about 12 psi then too?
