Check these threads regarding what causes cheese to turn gritty in sauces:

Community Forums - Gritty fondue cheese sauce seeks creamy resolution

I can't vouch that any of it is correct, but the "too much heat" theory seems to make sense.

Comments?

I can't believe you 'cheat' on us here at DC with reading a different site!
Actually, the salty grittiness from an aged sharp cheddar is actually gritty between your teeth (both when cold and warm, though not cooked), whereas, a 'graininess' you get from too much salt (even from just the cheese) you might get in a cheese sauce, is not gritty, but, lacks the smoothness--more of a curdling effect with too much salt in the sauce. YEs? No?
