I need a 12v battery w/ very high amps. Do they make 12v batteries w/ lets say, 50 or more amps?

I am charging my 12v batteries w/ my 60 watt solar panel, and I need to power a water distiller thats 850w at 4 hours to distil 1 gallon. How many amps would I need, and whats the best way to do this, is there 12v batteries that I can run in parallel to get the amps up? Also, I am using a 1200watt inverter to invert from 12v dc to 110-120v ac. I know I can't run them in series, it would probly blow the inverter, but any answers will be good.

    well.... garden tractor batteries are 50 amps... but for the same price you can get a car battery thats good for 250-300 amps. For your particular app I would get a deep cycle marine battery.
