but isn't it the alpha acids in hops that prevent bacterial growth? I always thought there was a direct relationship between the hop bitterness and the hop's antibacterial power.

I thought that lambics use aged hops because they wouldn't stop the lacto, pedio etc from working... So if we want to make a beer from just wild sacch and brett, as opposed to a beer with bacterial sourness, we would want it to have plenty of hop bitterness...

. . . right?

Sweet! Would be good for a girl beer too. Edit: Wait, not seeing them. What are they called?

Yeah like everyone said, just use as low alpha hops as possible.
