Yes. But, all you have to do is to revoke the subkey which is used
for encryption. The primary (DSA) keys stays and with it all your key
1. --edit-key your_key
create a new encryption only key
3. select your old subkey ("key 1")
and you have revoked your old key.
The old key will still stay in your keyring but it will never be used
for encryption anymore. However, you can still decrypt messages
encrypted for the old key.
