Not at all! Sweetened condensed milk is not a milk substitute. What you
want is evaporated milk. vaporated milk is fresh homogenized milk with 60%
of its water removed by evaporation. It contains 7.9% milk fat.

Alternatively, buy powdered milk and reconstitute it.

No, no, no, no.
Sweetened condensed milk is a sickenly sweet, goopy, thick concoction
and is in no way anything like whole milk. If you need whole milk for a
recipe why not just go out and get a quart or however much you need.
It's a whole lot cheaper than SCM.

Sweetened condensed milk CANNOT be used as a substitute for whole milk. It's
90% - 95% sugar by volume. In some recipes (particularly ice cream) you can
substitue sweetened condesend milk for sugar (1:1 by volume).
