Yes, I would double the recipe. It's really important to follow the recipe's requirements for size when using a slow cooker. There are times when it doesn't matter and the recipe will usually make that clear, but in the case of a stew, it would be spread too thin in your slow cooker. Luckily, that stew will freeze well.
