We normally don't say "big amount", but "large amount" (don't ask me why -- just sounds a bit funny to me). So this would be "largest amount".
BTW, the rule as far as I can tell is this:
* "big" can apply to countable things, physical or not; but can't apply to quantities. So "big cat", "big house", "big idea", and "big ego" are OK, but "big volume" or "big amount" are wrong. * "large" can apply to quantities, and to physical things, but not to non-physical things. So "large cat", "large house", "large volume", and "large amount" are all OK; but "large idea" and "large ego" are wrong.
