Putting a towel in the bottom of the pot to keep it from making contact with the jars will prevent the jars from being cracked by the heat.

Not for PF jars. The lids are on tight and the holes are taped so no need. If you are using porous tape then it would be a good idea.

I don't understand your first question. Yes, 1/2 pint will work for liquid culture.

Yes, the holes must be covered to prevent the moisture content being thrown off. If no tape, use foil.

no it wont, it will prevent them from cracking from bouncing up and down from the bubbles

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.
