A 2L starter will provide a substantial margin of error for 5-gallons of 1.070 wort.  However, a starter is a waste of time with that much yeast slurry at your disposal.   All you need to do is to pitch 5 to 6 fluid ounces of that stuff.

Sorry, for future batches, what size starter do you recommend for > 1.070?
