So i put the posts on my corny in reverse. then i muscled the gas line onto the wrong one and carbed the keg. I now realize what i did but only after trying to connect the picnic tap to the keg, it will not go on. can i switch the posts now that it is carbed or not?

Will beer go all over the place?

Vent, remove, sanitize and switch.

Yep, although I'm not sure you need to sanitize - but why not

sanitize due to the contact of the insides that touch your hands and also touch the beer.
star san in a spray bottle, FTW!

Switch happens.

If your pressure relief valve has a locked open position, I'd recommend using it.
