better to err on the low side and add more if needed at bottling time or when kegging. Especially with a 3bbl batch where you have a lot on the line.

Here is a reference of what to expect for final gravity with lactose:

And how sweet it might taste:

I've done several iterations of milk stout and (depending on batch size) have been between 1 lb and 1.5 lb per 5 gallons. My milk stout recipe uses a LOT of roast, though, so I need that much sweetness to balance.

For a vanilla espresso stout, I'd probably do a lighter touch. 3/4 lb per 5 gallons sounds nice.
