For Windows with Adobe Reader

File -> Print

Change printer to Adobe PDF (I don't think this option is for Mac)

There should be a convert to B&W checkbox and click print. You will now be asked to save the PDF.

Adobe Acrobat Pro (Windows and Mac)

Tools -> Preflight

Under "PDF fixups" select "Convert to grayscale". Then click "Analyze and fix". Name the file and save
