Brass takes more heat. A common mistake is to overheat to the point that your flux melts away. Use good thick flux or you'll fight it...The black stuff that comes in the little snuff cans will cause you headaches a lot of the time.

I heat my fittings and touch the solder to the OPPOSITE side of the fitting as the flame...When the solder melts and sucks in you know you've got it and can pull the heat off. Remember that the solder is drawn toward the flame so you shouldn't apply the solder where the flame is held.
