I read it's not fermentable by yeast, so I'm think it's not in lieu of the priming sugar.
Your knowledge and assistance is greatly appreciated!!!
Oh, also, did you find that the oils from the vanilla bean wasn't an issue?
You want to add the lactose anytime during the boil so that it will disolve into the wort, also it is partly fermentable. The vanilla bean poses not trouble.
