Can you over yeast?

Do you mean over-pitch?

In a commercial brewing setting you most definitely can, but they pitch with concentrated yeast slurry only. In a home brew setting I very much doubt that you could exceed the maximum pitching rates, even the largest of starters has to be limited in size or it will water down the wort too much and you won't get the beer you were aiming for.

Cheers,

Vale
