what would be the best way to remove the algae from the water and dry it?

I just recently made myself a recycled bottle bio reactor to grow algae in, and now I'm wondering what the easiest way would be for me to separate out some of the algae and dry it. I'm hoping to be able to get something fairly dry and dense without having to bake it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

You can use a French press to separate the algae. It is detailed here:

(try doing an Instructables search next time. It can save you some time and dignity.)

Have fun!

I have already read that particular Instructable and I'm trying to think of a more automated way of extracting the algae. I apologies for not being more specific.
Ah, ok... You could probably automate a French press, but how... Good luck...

Solar evaporator/distiller comes to mind...
