Cant loosen break bleed nipple what now???

Ok I changed my breaks out yesterday and I went ahead and drained the lines completely and put new break fluid in (it needed it) anyway got the front breaks done no complications. Then when I went to bleed the rear breaks I noticed the 2nd bleed nipple was completely striped and rusted. After playing with it for a while i decided to file it down on two sides so i could grip it with a wrench this is what happened:
Granted this wasn't the best quality wrench but I was torquing the out of the thing (with about a 12 inch breaker bar) before it broke. Ive already tried soaking it in penetrating oil/WD40 anyone have any other suggestions how i can loosen this thing up so i can have a rear break again?

get a new one

hammer a socket onto old one, ALWAYS TIGHTEN A RUSTY BOLT FIRST, ESPECIALLY BRAKE BLEEDER SCREWS, then loosen, remove, replace and bang out old screw from the back side w a punch/vise.

you let the front brake lines drain completely?

i hope you kept topping off the master cyclinder...or you MIGHT need a new one. never let the master cylinder dry out.....that is bad news.

made in china.

thats your problem right there. get your lame down to sears and buy something decent from craftsman. itll be the same price or slightly more than that autozone garbage, and it shouldnt break. if for some reason it does, you can bring it back and get a new one without a reciept.

if corroded, pb blaster works wonders, then use a fitted wrench.
