Default Back sweetening a oatmeal stout ?'s

I made a great oatmeal and want to add a hint of seetness too it. I have not played with lactose yet but have 3 lbs put away, any idea of how much to start with for a 5 gal batch? And how much water to lactose for the boil, seeing this will be going in the keg during racking.

Thanks

doesn't matter how much water...I use the smallest amout possible, roughly a cup or so if I can get away with it. just so you can dissolve the lactose/bottling sugar in there.

I would start with 1/3 or 1/2 lb if you're only looking for a touch of sweetness. A full pound is normally used in Milk and Sweet stouts and, if you've never had one, they can be pretty sweet as far as beer goes.
