Default Brass freeze plugs!

Always use brass freeze plugs! Anyone know why?

Don't ask me how I know!

The water around here will rust a 5 gal plastic bucket in about 15 minutes.... I've only had 2 rust out in cars or trucks I've had. It was always the one at the rear of the motor and no room between there and the firewall.
