Default Bleed hydrylic clutch slave cylinder NEED ASAP PLEASE

Ok, I've already done the research and I know how to do this but there is a problem I have run into with my slave cylinder. This is a Duralast 10386 slave cylinder. It came new with the truck when I bought it. The problem I am running into is that there is no nipple to put the line from the slave cylinder down to the jar of brake fluid. There are no threads to attach a nipple on the end of what you see (in the picture attached). Since I have a new slave cylinder, I would rather not have to go buy another one just to have something to attach the hose to while I bleed it. It is one piece all the way back to the housing. Has anyone ever done this type or have any suggestions on how to do this one?

You couldn't by a new one to get a different bleed screw. They're all like that.

The hose is to contain the mess if you have two people. One to operate the clutch peddle and one to operate the valve and hold a coffee can underneath.
You could use a self checking bleeder valve if you can match the threads so that you can bleed it yourself. 'bout $7.00

Is that like a speed bleeder for brakes? If so, I don't think it will be long enough. that piece on the slave cylinder is about 3 inches long and if it is any shorter, I will not have access to it from the outside of the transmission once I get it mounted back to the truck.
