It is a key indgredient. It's VERY important on a job like this.
My favorite (lately) is Yuengling Porter.
Seriously though, great instructions.
Here's a couple of tips I picked up along the way for when I finally get around to making our interior storms.
Get a remnant of indoor/outdoor carpeting (or some other thin piece of commercial carpeting) to cut the glass on. A large enough piece to hold the entire piece of glass that you need to cut and a countertop or other flat surface to spread it out on.
A little bit of mineral spirits on the glass where you plan to make the cut makes the glass cutter move much easier across the surface. The pro that gave me instructions on cutting glass kept his glass cutter in a coffee can with about 1 inch of mineral spirits in the bottom of the can.
BTW THANKS for mentioning that you shouldn't have to pay for glass. I didn't ever really think about finding it for free, but now that you mention it, why not!!!
PS - What species/grade of wood are you using?
