How do I use the Benedict’s reagent test for reducing sugars to estimate how much reducing sugar is present without using a colorimeter?

To my knowledge there isn't another method covered in biology which is quantitative, I know of a few other methods but they're qualitative only so can't be used to estimate concentrations. In guessing that you maybe can just prepare some sample solutions of different concentrations and just estimate by eye against them, but this would be inaccurate.
Sorry this isn't very helpful but maybe someone else can provide a solution.

Filter the solution and weigh the precipitate. The colour change is a precipitate forming.
