davew,
What does the Tomato purée do to the cider?
Never seen that in a recipe before.
Are you drinking this yet? :D

It's a substitute for yeast nutrient.
Probably costs more...

Yep, it's a nutrient for the yeast, WA. Old Distillers trick for the mash. As OB says tho. it's probably dearer to buy than dedicated yeast nutrient -

Is yeast nutrient needed? I've never had a problem with cider fermentation just by adding yeast to juice.

Interesting, my cider does seem to take a while to ferment. I'm lazy though so as long as it doesn't affect taste I'm good without it :)
