After upgrade to OSX Monterey (10.21.1) program crashes --FIXED NOT Beersmith

After a recent upgrade to MAC OS 10.21.1 Beersmith 2 is crashing on me.  From what I can tell happens when the program writes to my HD.  Worked well (and awesome) before the update of the OS.

Any help would be appreciated.

It appeared that after my upgrade my Mac duplicated a drive.  That drive became read-only preventing anything from being written to it.  Oddly enough, other programs were functioning fine.  Perhaps I had not used a program that uses the same protocol to write to the drive as Beersmith does.
I had to run in "Recovery Mode" and delete the duplicated drive and things started working fine.
When you say Recovery mode, can you be more specific as I am having constant crashes with a recent upgrade to monterey
