Default Has anyone used Nestle's Quik...

I want to impart some sweetness in my chocolate stout. Cocoa powder is too bitter. Could I use Quik as a priming sugar since it contains sugar or should I add it to the secondary?

The yeast will consume the sugar in the powder, so you won't get residual sweetness. Lactose is what you're after - the yeast won't eat it.
