Anyone know the range(degrees F) from setting 1 to 9. I am thinking I can sit my lager in the fridge to free up my fermentation chamber for an ale, and wondering where I should set it if I do so.

GE model gts18jcprrww. I've had no luck finding my answer on google though.

Those are relative settings, not absolute so the temperature of a unit set to "1" or "3" will vary from unit to unit.

The only thing you can do is set it for "5" and check to see what temp the unit stabilizes at and then adjust up or down as needed.

I was afraid of that. All the thermometers I have either don't read that low, or are made to use on a baby.

Any restaurant supply store will have inexpensive fridge thermometers.
