I don't think it really matters if it's Wine bottles or beer bottles or even mason jars...
I bought some flying dog in pony bottles & i'm planning on using them myslf. I thought it would be nice to have it in a small amount at a time.

I don't think you have to wait 6 months to bottle. The instructions say you can bottle after 2. I bottled the day before yesterday but it's still way too hot to drink. Maybe bottle and wait another 6 months to drink.

I'm sure it's better after 6 months, but I used D47 so it's bound to be different than if you used bread yeast, I think.
