    I would sugest bulk priming to get the right carb level. If sticking with the drops would go for 1 in 450ml as stouts have a lower carb level than ales & lagers.

    If you want to stick with the little lollies, the answer has to be one per bottle.
    Different styles of beer have different ideal amounts of condition or carbonation (charge isn't really the right term here). Stouts are generally on the lower side so this will work to your advantage in this case.

    Carbonation drops are a pretty blunt instrument, there are ways to get more precise control over your carbonation.
    Worth looking up "Bulk Priming" or have a read of Braukaiser, he has a good section on conditioning beers and a few ways to control the amount of fizz.

    If you're planning for long term storage, swing tops may not be your best bet. I'd go crown seal for anything needing aging.
    +1 to MHBs suggestion to read up on bulk priming. That's what I do and it's easy as.
