Default Adding Sucrose to Milk/Sweet Stout Post Fermentation

I have brewed a milk stout, but I want it to be sweeter. The milk stout has finished fermenting but has not yet been bottled. Can I add sucrose post fermentation? Would residual yeasts ferment said sucrose and negate the sweetness? how much sucrose should I add? Is there another kind of sugar I should consider using?

Default

the sucrose would get fermented. you can try lactose or malto-dextrine as both are unfermentable
