French translation help needed please

Yesterday I set a half gallon of yogurt that did not set up to my satisfaction. So I just removed from my freezer my last packet of dry yogurt starter culture and the instructions are in French, apparently I did not keep the other half of the packet that was in English .

What is says is;

Chauffer un litre (1 pinte) de lait a 82 * C (180 * F) ou jusqu' a ebullition


Now since the temerature in parenthesis is English, I would think the 1 pinte would also be English, but it is not. My question is how much milk to use, one quart or one pint??

Many thanks for any translation...

A ebullition :

Thanks Jan,

I'm thinking I have figured out the seeming contradiction on the litre/pinte. The packet came in two 5g segments, and the whole 10g should have been used for a litre/quart of milk. So I am leaning toward using one pint since all I have left is 5g starter. That would explain why not all the parenthesis are in English.

"jusqu' a ebullition" = bring to a boil.

I am 99% sure ebulition is "boiling". It is almost identical to Italian "ebolizione".

Don't forget the that 'pint' may be a UK 'Imperial' pint, which I believe is differnt to US pint. It's probably best to use litre/ml measurements.

Y'all beat me to the punch!

but a litre is a bit more than a quart, so I'm not sure what the referral to "pinte" is all about. I remember a family vacation in Canada when my Mom poured what she was thinking was a quart of milk into our thermos, and the d*%n thing overflowed because there was more milk in the litre bottle than our quart thermos would hold. Good -- practical -- arithmetic lesson for a couple of kids!
