I plan on racking my cider onto sorbate/camden pretty soon, should i just mix the sorbate/camden into my sweetner and rack onto that? or sorbate/campden, wait a day, then sweeten, and when you sweeten should you rack on top of sweetner?? I plan to sweeten with frozen can concentrate, letting it unthaw first of course. A day after i stop fermentation and sweeten, i plan on bottling.

wait a day or two after the campden and sorbate before you sweeten. It is not necessary to rack onto the sweeter just stir it into the batch then wait (a week i think) before bottling just to make sure that it doesn't referment and make bottle bombs
