Thanks for the help!
If you bottle at day 9, without testing the SG to make sure it's done, you may have some bottle bombs. "Tasting caps" will not hold pressure, and neither will wine bottles.
If you want to have a carbonated cider, you must use bottles that can hold carbonation. Soda bottles, beer bottles, champagne bottles, etc, will work. But not wine bottles! If you're lucky, the caps will just blow off but if you're not lucky, the wine bottles will blow up as well.
