Same here, although I cheat a bit.
I may be skirting death with 30-second starsan wet contact instead of 120-seconds*, but my bottles are always very clean. My actual step by step looks like this:
1. dip bottle upside down in vinator reservoir as described by Alpo
2. pump on vinator as normal
3. let it sit on the vinator nozzle and drain while I fill the current bottle
So I always have a bottle in my hand filling, and one draining on the vinator spout. Moves pretty fast, and I still think I'm killing the majority of the buggies.
*although I think the BBR podcast with teh starsan guy said the killing happens in 30secs but the FDA test is 2mins so that is what they put on the package
