It's not possible via Jalview's user interface, and unfortunately, the 
blosum62 colourscheme is currently implemented as a hard-wired set of 
colours. However, if you need grayscale for figure export, then I'd 
recommend post-processing your alignment figure in illustrator (or 
inkscape for EPS), or image magick (for PNG) - or even exporting as EPS 
and printing it to PDF using grayscale colour settings.

Alternately, I could give you some pointers if you would like to improve 
jalview by implementing this as a new feature!
