Default To big of a starter?

I just made a starter for my brewday tomorrow and stupid me instead of putting intermittent shaking I kept it on simple starter on mr. Malty which almost doubled the amount of starter. My first question is should I shake it or just leave it alone since I went with simple starter amount? Second question is there any such thing of to big of a starter? The OG is 1.052. Thanks in advance

Proceed as normal. Extra yeast won't harm your beer.
