After your jars are filled with substrate you want to put on either a jar lid or a tinfoil lid and top and then make as many inoculation holes as you want. Then pressure cook or boil.
After inoculation I usually put another wrapping of tinfoil around the jars over the holes, but theres alot of things you can use for this step.
I dont know about how long the sterilized jar would last, quite a while i would guess unless it evaporated water and dried out or something of that sort.

i recently had a problem were i sterilized some jars and then were stuck with them until the following week before i could knock em up, and they were fine 8 day later, they all have great growth going so up till 8 days is what i have from my experiences, and I'm sure they will last longer if needed, just try to keep em sterile and not in a hot dry place so they don't loose any moisture
