I had my first stab at making a loaf today..I did a simple cinnamon raisin bread, which called for milk. What is the difference btn water and milk? I just wonder if the lactose in the milk/acidity, alters the dough when it’s made. Is it just to make the dough sweeter.

It makes the bread more tender, primarily, and improves the color.
