So, the first night he did actually pee when I put him on the potty again after he had already been in bed. I was totally surprised.

The second night, not at all. That is why I instituted the before bed potty time, so he would have no excuse. I actually think he is a little young to understand that idea, but then at least I would know I covered all my bases.

But I think you are right about changing up the routine; we could stand to have a bit more time between bottle and potty.
