Create a grey monotone image

I'm about to get my company logo sand blasted onto a set of glasses and I want to mock up the final result before pushing the button.

I need to create a monotone (1 shade of grey only) version of our logo using Photoshop but I can't manage to do it.  A step by step guide would be greatly appreciated.

This says you can select the type as monotone, duotone, tritone, etc... I would say this is probably what you are looking for.

Convert an image to duotone

Convert the image to grayscale by choosing Image > Mode > Grayscale. Only 8bit grayscale images can be converted to duotones.
Choose Image > Mode > Duotone.
In the Duotone Options dialog box, select Preview to preview the image.
For the Type option, select Monotone, Duotone, Tritone, or Quadtone.
Click the color box (the solid square) to open the color picker, then click the Color Libraries button and select an ink book and color from the dialog box.
Note: To produce fully saturated colors, specify inks in descending orderdarkest at the top, lightest at the bottom.
Click the curve box next to the color ink box and adjust the duotone curve for each ink color.
Set overprint colors, if necessary.
Click OK.
To apply a duotone effect to only part of an image, convert the duotone image to Multichannel modethis converts the duotone curves to spot channels. You can then erase part of the spot channel for areas that you want printed as standard grayscale.
