Render times with transparent stuff..

I'm fooling around a little bit with transparancy, refraction and so on, and when rendering a glass that has 2 sides (in/out) the rendertimes increase a LOT!
Anyone that has any tips on how to make the rendertimes shorter?

I've compared it with a single side glass with the same size and it renders under a minute, i cant understand how 1 more side can increase it so much!

reduce the number of ray bounces, should be in the render options

Thanks for the tip! I've messed around with that setting now and I'm getting better rendertimes now.
I also got to read the manual a little bit and stumbled over some really cool stuff!
