Wax

Yo! Saw this on r/beer, didn't realize I'd be mentioned, haha.

My only comment: Some wax is a lot easier to remove than other wax, as I mentioned in my piece. When it's like the wax in the video above, and it just shatters, then it's very easy to remove with practically any kind of sharp implement. However, in the course of blind-tasting so many imperial stouts and whatnot, we also encountered many bottle where the wax is much, much softer, and as such it doesn't shatter and come off cleanly in big pieces like that. In those cases, you're left shaving little bits off at a time, and it clings to the cap like it's been glued on. Those are a mess.

Cheers!

You are the Miyagi to my Daniel-san

I fully admit I do not have the experience of opening bottle after bottle after waxed bottle as you guys did. But I have opened a number in my day, and at the risk of a truly Icarus-like downfal, I will say that I put complete faith in my method. A few wax dips have been ribbony and rubbery, but I hold my ground.
