That works like a charm, a barrel filled with water with a coil of Copper pipe in it is the usual way to do this and it's probably the best way short of a refrigerated drier to accomplish the condensation process. I think that while a length of rubber hose would not work quite as well as Copper pipe I seriously doubt you would be able to see the difference. If the air is cold and dry you might want to just try running the hose off the tank first because there might not be enough moisture in the air to be a problem.
