I had many good DRs, but I could not finish any of them

L2 D' B' / U' L U2 L' B2 L2 R2 U' 11 2c3 -> 24
L2 D' B' / U R B2 L2 D2 R U' 10 4b3 -> 23 with 5qt, otherwise 24
D' L2 D' B / D2 U' B2 U L U' L 11 2c3 -> 25

And this cool one
R' U2 R' //EO (3/3)
U F //JZP (2/5)
(F) //CO (1/6)
L2 F* R2 L2 B' //DR 4b2 with F* = F or F' (5/11)

There was a 22, but hard to find. From the F' variation:

(F2 U L2 D') D R2 F2 D //HTR (8-1/18)

I solved very badly and I got lucky.
Early on I found a 7 move DR (!!) from a 4 move EO, but then I realized I had misscrambled. I was at 30 minutes when I realized and I had no good *real* DR, I did not know what to do so I just started working on the 5 move EOs. Found this one at 45 minutes, very lucky finish.
