You can brew the beer any way you want, but you wanted a Union Jack clone.

Using extract and a different yeast strain will make it a different beer.

I'm going to use the WLP002 yeast. Just curious if it will be close, I know it won't be exact. I'm not a beer tasting expert, as long as it's 90% of the way there then I would be very happy.
