Someone in our lab recently tried drying a gel in a "primitive" way...
and it worked.  You may be interested in trying this, since there's no
risk of shattering your gel with sudden changes in pressure.

Lay the gel on a sheet of cellophane, top with plastic wrap.  Lay the 
gel on the bench on top of a stack of paper towelling, to soak up moisture, 
and pile books on top to keep it flat.  After a few days, it'll be 
dry; and hopefully in one piece.
