Here is my dummy math, meaning for me, not you. If you have 5 gallons of 15% ABV hard cider, that means in theory, I have 19.2 oz of 200 proof hooch per gallon. So, once again, in theory, you have 96...

To back sweeten you have two options, one is to use a non fermentable sweetener, and the other is to add campden or the like, to stop the yeast from re-starting, and then sweeten as much as you like.
