Default Sanitize Beer Bottles with Potassium Metabisulfite?

Can I use K-meta (at normal sanitizing dilutions for wine bottles) to sanitize beer bottles?

It's not a common practice among homebrewers from what I've seen. The standard go-to sanitizer is usually an iodine-based solution like Star-San or Iodophor.
