What's the torque spec for the brake bleeder valve/screw?

I noticed last couple of DE outings I have brake fluid seeping at the bleeder screws (at multiple calipers). I do not notice seepage after normal street driving. Evidently I did not tighten down the screw tight enough for track use. I don't want to over torque the screw, since the monoblock is aluminum and the screw is steel, and steel > aluminum. That said, does anyone (Pedro?) know what the torque spec is for the bleeder screw? Thanks!
8-12 Nm (6 - 9 ftlb)
Happy Boxstering,
