Default Backsweetening

How long should I wait after fermentation is complete before I can backsweeten? Do I just have to clarify and make sure that all the yeast paddies are removed? Any tips? Anything I should watch out for?

Make sure you do not add a fermentable sugar if you are not using potassium sorbate. Doing so would cause fermentation to start again
