Cleaning Glassware with Acid Rinse

Q. I use a Miele glass wash machine and currently use Alcojet. I am wondering if I need to use a two step wash with an acid rinse to be sure the glass is residue free. What detergents would you recommend for either a one or two step cleaning process?
A. Alcojet detergent is free-rinsing, meaning it rinses completely away with water and without rinse aids.
