I'm actually very interested in this as my wife likes things sweet, but i'm to afraid to pasteurize.
I'm assuming if he is kegging that he is either A) Keeping it cold enough not to ferment or B) Stablilized with k-meta and sorbate. But you're right, if he didn't do either of those it would still ferment down to dry.
Just the normal tube. 1 can definitely isn't going to make it sweet if it has fermented dry. It is really up to your taste. I prefer semi-sweet(1.010-1.015) and sweet (1.020). I would buy a few and add them one at a time until you get the taste you're looking for. That's what I did when I first started out and began making my own recipes. Just make sure it gets mixed in well!
