Tip: (for 5 & 6 Step)

As soon as the flour has lost its raw smell, start pouring in the milk in small additions, whisking the whole time. Adding in small increments is key. It allows you to ensure that the flour isn't sitting in clumps at the bottom of the pan, which can lead to a grainy or lumpy sauce later on. If you've got good coordination and a nice heavy pan, you can slowly drizzle with one hand while whisking with the other. Otherwise, you can splash in a couple of tablespoons at a time, working quickly and whisking in each addition before adding more.

At first, the roux will seize up into thick balls, but it will smooth out and become liquid again as more milk is added. Once all the milk has been added, it'll usually seem as thin as plain milk. That's fine; just bring it to a simmer, and the flour will start to do its thing, its starch swelling and bursting and thickening the sauce.
