You can use whichever yeast strain you prefer. Extract/all grain/partial mash doesn't matter- it's still wort and will ferment the same way.

Yes of course. It's the same thing. The only thing is that extract was already mashed, so extract brewing skips the mashing step. Otherwise, it's exactly the same.

How bad is the taste going to be compared to an AG ?? I'm doing a 500 DME and 700 dextrose...

If you follow a good process, it'll be good. I brew both AG and extract, and honestly, I think it's easier to make a great AG brew than a great extract brew. It sounds like you're doing a "kit and kilo" type brew, I've never done one personally, but I'd say if you follow good brewing practice and use the wyeast, you'll get a good beer. Especially considering the ease of the brew day.

It will taste like **** I assume. I'm not sure about your measurements, as I am american and more familiar with pounds and ounces(also too lazy to do the math to convert it). But it appears as if you have more sugar than dme, and that's not gonna make good beer.

All DME added to the can would be better.Along with maybe 2oz of hops. See my recipes for suggestions along these lines.
