I don't normally do these conversions. This is how Beersmith did it.

How much vanilla extract did you use?

My notes say 2 oz. I suggest you try that and taste it - you can do this at bottling. If you want more, add it in small amounts.

So there's not a big difference between vanilla extract and vanilla bean?

In addition, do you think this could work with a stout?

I did a 10-gallon batch of this the weekend before last, my efficiency was a bit low in my new mash tun (needed a 70qt tun for 10-gallons of this) so it was 1.070, but after a week in primary, racked on saturday and it is down to about 1.015 (was on a really big yeast cake from at least 2 previous beers), first beer that tastes amazing from the carboy warm and flat...this is gonna be great. I am going to add some bourbon and vanilla extract at kegging time.

If you use good pure vanilla extract, then I'd say there's not much difference, but pure extract can be very expensive.

I think the vanilla would be OK in a stout. I'm not sure about the bourbon. In both cases, I think you'd want to start with smaller amounts since a typical stout won't be as strong as this porter recipe.

Let us know if you try it.

I remember the same thing. It still takes some time to condition after fermenting, though.

Keezer is full, and I have 2 more kegs to put in it before I get to the porter, so that should not be a problem...need to drink more.
