In all basement support work I've done, I use 4" steel, concrete filled columns for the final posts. (from my local lumber yard)
Cut them to the final length after you get the beam to the level you want it. Go a little over on the height when jacking to allow for settling.
I use 20T bottle jacks for jacking and usually 4x4 temporary jack posts.
