Make the holes before. Make sure to put tinfoil over the tops to keep excess water out.

Don't cover the holes at all; there is no need. You only need one hole and remember to use foil over the jars and don't remove it throughout the grow.

Coverring the holes with foil will help you tremendously keep out germs and allow the air exchange you need.

Doing the four hole lids will speed up colonization quite a bit (more innoculation points! :wink: )
