Did u carb a lot in them? I'm not experienced in bottle conditioning. I went strait to kegs and then bottled off the keg. So this is new to me.

Yes, for a year or two I bottle carb'd in that same type of growler.

I primed with corn sugar.

I did have on bottle crack but I blame that on using table sugar and not mixing well.

After a day or 2 after opening my growler, it's never as fresh as the first time, I'd rather just fill mine for a family picnic and finish it off ..........

I have 2 Growler Saver caps that I use to re-carb opened 64oz growlers. Are the tops the same for the 1gal ones?

The Growler Saver has a pressure relief valve that'll open up before the growler might break. I believe it puts on about 10-12lb CO2 pressure and allows you to purge. You can use it to recarb flat beer(bad idea as it's probably been oxidized) but I don't see why you couldn't carb a homebrew with it. The only thing is your growler must be less than 2/3rds full or it'll blow beer out the pressure relief valve all over you and anyone else close by-whoops. Also, it was a bit expensive, something like $100 for 2 caps and the CO2 dispenser. I got mine from Nikobrew(great, fast shipping.) http://www.nikobrew.com/growler-saver/
