A wrench WILL work, but it has to be large and it has to have stiff arms with a sharp-enough edge to not slip off the molded-in indentations on the cap. A BIG adjustable wrench like this is perfect:

Your hand will also work if it's strong enough - just grab and twist counter-clockwise. It's a standard "lefty loosey, righty tighty" thread.
