When plumbing a brake system, is it ok to use the aluminum AN fittings or should you use steel with brake fluid?

I use aluminum an fittings no problem. In long term not a bad idea to check em for internal erosion but I never have or have had a problem. Biggest thing is keep fluid fresh. I try to flush every season. I have read AL fittings take a different flare degree but I just do a standard flare with tube sleeve and nut with no problems.
