It's a big beer but not hugely so.  You might be fine with 2 packs of yeast.

If you add the lactose you should be expecting a pretty high FG as you already have quite a bit of unfermentables in there.  If you are going to add the lactose, maybe consider decreasing your crystal 40L by 1# and you midnight wheat by 1# too. Just a thought.

With that OG, your two packs will suffice and I bet you could even get away with 1 pack too.
