Makin' Seitan

So I made seitan for the first time tonight, and it's simmering right now. I have a question, though, about the process. While I was rinsing it to remove the bran, it completely fell apart (which I've heard is normal). The big problem was that I couldn't figure out a way to drain the water from it without losing a ton of the mush! The recipe started with 4 lbs. of flour and said I should end up with 2.5 lbs. of cooked seitan, but it's really closer to only 1 lb. Is there a good draining method that I should know about? I was just sort of pouring the water off the top, then I switched to using two bowls and scooping the mush from one to the other. Whaddya think? By the way, I used the recipe/method from Vegan Planet.
