My question is-i see that some beers are lagered a temperatures as low as 35 so does anyone have any suggestions on an easy way of converting this to be able to drop down that low? (i suppose i pickup a $50 thermostat control but i was hoping to maybe do something a little more clever with what i got...)
If you are thinking of the temperature controller that you plug the unit into, it will not get the temp to go lower, only higher. Think about it, it is interrupting current to the fridge when the temperature gets as low as XX degrees. Now, if you are planning on ripping out the fridge's existing temp controller and replace with a Love unit or something similar, that's a different story, but a lot more work.
