Cycling LR, It's been a Month

Alright I purchase some LR from BRS and it's been cooking for over a month now. When I first tested it after 24hr. The reading where way off the charts from my test kit. I've been doing water changes every so often and now a month later my readings are

Ammonia 0.0PPM
Nitrate 20PPM
Nitrite 1.0PPM

Should I do a few more water changes or is my cycling almost done?

LMK

This is my first time ever cycling any LR purchased Online...

Thanks

Looks like you're close. Don't forget to feed the ammonia eaters while it's finishing. Fish food, ammonia, watevva

They should, depending on how much LR you bought, you hay have to add more than a pinch. Won't see any readable ammonia right away either, but it should work.
