Default Back Sweeten my Cider?

I want to back sweeten my Cider and I have a 5 gallon batch. fermentation is complete and my FG reading was .098. What I was wondering is what is a good ratio for a sweet cider when back sweetening? I guess I dont fully understand this process and I dont know what I should use to back sweeten. I was thinking about using the same apple juice that I used to make the cider. Would that work? I plan on bottle carbing and then heat pasturizing to kill off the yeast when I reach the right carbanation.

Thanks Andy

Apple juice concentrate. 4-7 12 oz cans. Add 4 cans to bottling bucket. Rack cider. Stir gently and taste. Add more if needed.
