Thanks, I think I'll just try double bagging and skip the cage. The reason I was 2:1 on the water is because of all the lost space with the cage, it needed that much to submerge the grain. I do have another 2 gal pot that I use to sparge with the cage's raised bottom to filter through the grain bed, will try to jam the bag back in there and hope it fits.
