Default Peaty-- SpeedBleeder Question

I installed 4 speedbleeders on my 2002 Maxima today. The speedbleeder is a little longer than the OEM that was on my Maxima.

So, I remove the old bleeder, install the new speedbleeder, then back it off 1/4 of a turn. I bled the brakes and tightened it back on. I don't have a torque wrench in inch pds, so I tightened it until I met some resistance then gave it a little more (1/4 turn or less). While the wheel was off, I cleaned all four wheel wells, springs and calipers with Simple Green and a brush.

I took the car on a test drive and all went well. Came back and felt around the bleeder and 3 of the 4 have some brake fluid there (less than a drop but enough to show on my finger). It's not dripping, but there is some fluid there.

My question is, how tight should I get these or is it normal to have a little leak out at first? I'm worried about breaking them off if I tighten too much.
