Default Creating a glass shader

Hello all,

I need help creating a glass shader. So far all my attempts have turned out badly. I'm having a hard time getting the right properties to make it look realistic. Any advice?

Your best bet is to go to the A/W site...there's a great tut. there on making realistic glass. Once you understand what and why it's done that way, then you can feel confident to go ahead and mess with your own settings
