I've had cider made from store bought juice that was delicious when it was very young.

I'll run 4.5 feet of beer line from the faucets to the kegs.This might not be long enough. You have to balance your system, and in my experience the stated psi/foot is often too low. So don't go cutting anything just yet.
QUESTION - does the gas line lenght matter like the beer hose lenght? Can I run a 2 foot gas line from the CO2 tank to the manifold?No. Yes.
Real world QUESTIONS - Once I put beer in a keg, what do I do? Seal the top, then what? Should I just attach the gas line and leave the gas at at 10 pounds until in comes out?Seal it and put pressure on it. Minimum of 5 psi to seal the keg. How high you go depends on the carbonation level you want in your beer and the temperature of the beer. The volumes of CO2 desired in a beer is typically determined by the style. You can find some values here or several other places, that's just the first one I googled. When you know your temperature and desired volumes of CO2 you can look it up in a carbonation chart like this one, again the first one I googled. I highly recommend carbonating at serving pressure, it takes a little longer but is really easy with no danger of overshooting on the carb.
Do I dial down the pressure after the beer is carbonated in a few days?I wouldn't, just leave it at serving temperature/pressure and it will equilibrate to the right level of carbonation. Then cut your serving hoses to the proper length for the psi you are serving your beer with.
Albinism and classic monster movies a good hint?No
Doesnt anybody have any good ones? I am thinking of a bunch.I posted a beer one a while back that got no responses, but it's an obscure song by a pretty obscure group.

If you want your beer to taste like glutamate, just leave it on the yeast in a warm place for an extended time.Have you added MSG to beer? I could see similarities from the flavor descriptions. Maybe try it in the glass before you do it in 5 gallons.
We like to call it 'autolysis'.
I like the idea too, and I'd love to write some of the yeast ones!How about taking a piece of geeky brewing research and dumb it down to a Joe 6 pack level? I want to know what people are experimenting with and what the results are but I can get through these technical research papers.
That's a great idea. Take a very technical topic and put it in average homebrewer terms and explain how it relates to what we do.
