You should bottle when it hits FG. I wouldn't bother with the nutrient unless your fermentation stalls though. It is a good thing to keep on hand though, so if you don't have any you might want to pick some up.

Since I see you now have some nutrient, add it, and wait. No point in bottling stinkbombs. If you miss the target SG, no big deal. Just backsweeten to taste, general consensus is 2 - 3 cans of thawed frozen apple juice concentrate and the cinnamon syrup mix.

I'm going to be giving the recipe a rewrite soon, with a couple tweaks here and there. One of those tweaks will be adding the apropriate amount of yeast nutrient at the beginning.

Mike, we have tons of fresh cider available here in NEPA (as I'm sure you do too). Would I be better off concentrating fresh cider or just use store bought stuff?
