24″ Stainless Steel Whisk [Extract and All Grain Brewers] – $9.99

Winco 24″ Stainless Steel French Whip


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Stainless steel construction
  • Measures 24″ in length
  • Ideal for mixing eggs, sauces and batter
  • Heavy gauge wire loops
  • Dishwasher safe

This looks similar to my 24″ Stainless Whisk.  That whisk is an easy upgrade that I generally recommend for all but small batch only brewers.  Check out my Hands on Review of that great tool.

Use this on brew day in your mash tun and brew kettle.  In the mash tun… a whisk like this makes quick work of breaking up up doughballs.  In the brew kettle… Use to incorporate extract, stir the brew kettle or start a kettle whirlpool.
