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.
Primary: nada
Secondary: emptyness
Bottled/Fridge: Sierra Nevada Celebration
Bombers/Growlers/Aging: The Abyss, Firestone 19th Anniversary Ale
Kegerator: sanitizer!
Coming Up: something spiffy, most likely
