The problem:

The solution

Bigger is better!


I had a problem with my last parmesan in that my hand was in the whey as i whisked the cheese into rice sized curds. so I found a bigger whisk!

Nice whisk!

We have a bigger one but basically it is a little longer and the s are basically a little longer and the tynes(?) are much thicker, which is not required for stirring milk.

Where did you find such a nice long thinish whisk?

Wayne,
Thanks for the link!
This is something that I DO need since my current whisk is only about 8" long and has a wood handle.
This is exactly what I need to keep my hands out of the milk.
Thanks!

That's the last thing we want Wayne's arm hair in the cheese.

Just for everyone's info I scouted out 24" long whisk at Smart and Final.

Sounds like what Uma Thurmand used to Kill Bill, in Kill Bill, the 5 Point Knuckle Hair Parm Technique.
