On here ...

https://www.amazon.co.uk/XCSOURCE-Ci...Hot+Water+Pump

... it states that the power consumption is 500mA.

With only that kind of draw on a battery a 55Ah battery will last over four days of continuous running so for a few hours brewing I reckon that almost any old 12v car battery that retained a charge would do the job.

Loads of thing use 12V power supplies and any that can supply at least the minimum current (0.5A according to Dutto's link) will work fine. They will come with a variety of different plugs that you could either remove and connect directly or add a socket to the pump or connect via a switch. This looks like the cheapest http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2A-AC-DC-1...1%26rkt%3D1%26

You could power it with a LED Driver/Transformer Power Supply, I use one similar to the link.
