I would clean the thread where the nipple meets the caliper with a wire brush and then soak it with plus gas for a couple of days and try again.

Be careful with heat as break fluid can ignite on a hot surface without needing a spark or naked flame to ignite if it is hot enough.

I have a set of THESE which work a treat if there is enough to grip.

I suppose it all  comes down to personal preference.

I like large dark ones best.

......be gentle with the wire brush though.

A soak in plus gas and ramming a smaller socket or spanner on, sorted one of mine.
