Default Brass Vs Stainless fittings

I am in the process of re-configuring my plumbing on my brew rack. I am wondering--what are the drawbacks of brass fittings? I have a mixture of stainless and brass on my system. All my valves are stainless, but i have some brass quick disconnects that i really like. I guess what i am getting at is---is it worth the $$ to step up and do it all in stainless?

What are you going to use to clean the system? Whatever your using, you will want to look into if its safe for brass. other than that I know a ton of people that use brass in brewing. I prefer stainless myself but thats just me.
